The flight will help validate SpaceX's crew transportation system, including the launch pad, rocket, spacecraft, and operational capabilities. The launch is scheduled for May 27 from Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Two NASA astronauts will arrive at Kennedy Space Center Wednesday ahead of a launch to the space station next week.

NASA's chief of human exploration has resigned just days before the first astronaut launch in almost a decade from Kennedy Space Center, citing a "mistake" he made taking "risks" to "fulfill our mission". (Peruvian time), this mission marks the first astronaut flight fully organized by the United States since the last launch of the space shuttle on July 8, 2011.

The two Shuttle-era astronauts will spend the next week in a familiar facility. The teams prepare for the upcoming takeoff of the Crew Dragon capsule that will take astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken to the International Space Station.

Since then, the only way to the space station for astronauts has been on Russian rockets launched from Kazakhstan. Jim Bridenstine, head of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, announced in a tweet. There were no handshakes for the astronauts, who did not wear masks but kept their distance at separate microphones.

"I nearly wish I was a young astronaut again", he said, referring to NASA's plans to return to the moon in four years. Boeing, the competing company, is not expect to launch its first astronauts until next year.
