Escape from coronavirus into space. May 27, the first manned astronaut flight on the ship Crew Dragon

So, on May 27, if nothing interferes with current plans, at 23:32 Moscow time, the Falcon 9 rocket with the Crew Dragon spacecraft will be launched from Launch Complex 39A cosmodrome in Florida. And this time it will be a manned mission.

If nothing changes, it is on May 27 for the first time in almost 10 years that American astronauts will go to the ISS in an American spacecraft. Recall that after the closure of the Space Shuttle program, people on the ISS were delivered exclusively by Russian Soyuz spacecraft.

This mission will also be important for SpaceX, as this will be the first flight of the Crew Dragon spacecraft with people on board, and the company of Elon Mask has no chance of a mistake.

On May 27, astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley will leave for the ISS. How much they spend on board the ISS is not yet decided, but the Crew Dragon ship can be in orbit for about 110 days.
