What is the SpaceX Crew Dragon Rocket?

The Crew Dragon made history on May 31, 2020, because it was the first time in nearly a decade that NASA astronauts arrived at the ISS, and what’s most exciting is that it began a new era in commercial space travel.

The Crew Dragon is a manned rocket ship built by Elon Musk’s company, SpaceX, and it thundered away from Earth with two Americans: Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken.

What is the Falcon 9 Rocket?

Falcon 9 is one of the coolest rockets there are, because it’s the world’s first reusable rocket! Not only that, but it’s also reusable, reliable and safe.

As we know, rockets are very expensive! But thanks to the Falcon 9’s reusability, exploring space will become more accessible.

Where can I watch the SpaceX Dragon Launch?

After traveling through space for 19 hours, SpaceX’s Crew Dragon docked at the ISS; the process of docking took a couple of hours, as they had to link things like power between the Dragon and the ISS.
