Live Astronauts Go on Orbit for the First Time Since Astronaut John Glenn Went on a Rocket from The U.S.


The trip is been scrubbed because of bad weather. Next window is saturday.


I am not counting the Shuttle because the shuttle was a vehicle mounted on a rocket not a capsule in a rocket!

Why it matters: If all goes well, this launch — expected to happen at 4:33 p.m. ET — will mark the first time a private company has successfully launched people to orbit and the first crewed, orbital rocket launch from the U.S. in 9 years.

Live Launch of SpaceX CRS-15 "The Dragon Spacecraft"






Updated on July 2, 2018, at 2:15 p.m.
Three days after its launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, the SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft -- with NASA's ECOSTRESS in tow -- was installed on the Earth-facing side of the International Space Station's Harmony module at 6:52 a.m. PDT (9:52 a.m. EDT) on Monday, July 2.
ECOSTRESS will be taken off the Dragon spacecraft and robotically installed on the exterior of the station's Japanese Experiment Module Exposed Facility Unit on Thursday night/Friday morning.
An Earth science instrument built by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, and experiments investigating cellular biology and artificial intelligence, are among the research heading to the International Space Station following Friday's launch of a NASA-contracted SpaceX Dragon spacecraft at 5:42 a.m. EDT.
