On Saturday, May 30th, Falcon 9 successfully launched Crew Dragons second demonstration (Demo-2) mission from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASAs Kennedy Space Center in Florida. This test flight with NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley on board the Dragon spacecraft initiated the return of human spaceflight to the United States.

Demo-2 is the final major test for SpaceXs human spaceflight system to be certified by NASA for operational crew missions to and from the International Space Station. With this launch, SpaceX helped initiate the return of human spaceflight to the United States with one of the safest, most advanced systems ever built. NASAs Commercial Crew Program is a turning point for Americas future in space exploration that lays the groundwork for future missions to the Moon, Mars, and beyond.
