NASA Launching US Astronauts from US soil May 27 2020

NASA and SpaceX have set May 27 as the target launch date for the first crewed space mission to launch into orbit from U.S. soil using a U.S. rocket.

NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken will launch in SpaceX’s Crew Dragon into orbit on top of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Liftoff time on May 27 is expected to be around 4:32 p.m. EDT (2032 GMT), when the Earth’s rotation brings the launch pad under the orbital plane of the International Space Station.
