VIDEO: Space X Demo-2 Launch

Astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley

NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley left Earth on Sunday in brand-new spacecraft to head to the International Space Station.

The second attempt launched successfully on 30 May 2020 at 19:22:45 UTC.

This is the first time in nine years that a space flight departed American soil.

President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence were at Kennedy Space Center in Florida to see the launch attempt on 27 May 2020 and returned for launch on 30 May 2020.

The first attempt to launch on 27 May 2020 was aborted due to bad weather caused by Tropical Storm Bertha 16 minutes and 53 seconds prior to launch.
