SpaceX manned spacecraft launch: how it was

On May 30, at 15:22 Eastern time, the SpaceX manned spacecraft launched to the ISS from the United States - an event that the American space industry had been waiting for almost 10 years. The first attempt was on May 27, but then, due to adverse weather conditions, the launch had to be canceled a few minutes before the start.

The Falcon 9 rocket rose from a launch pad in Florida. She put into orbit the SpaceX Crew Dragon manned spacecraft with 49-year-old Robert Benken and 53-year-old Douglas Hurley, experienced astronaut pilots.

Viewers could watch the launch only live. This decision was made in connection with the pandemic of coronavirus infection. NASA decided not to let the audience in, so as not to expose them to the risk of infection. The astronauts themselves were quarantined for two weeks for the safety of ISS personnel.

As stipulated by the flight plan, 12 minutes after launch, Crew Dragon entered orbit, separated from the Falcon 9 launch vehicle and continued to the ISS, and the first Falcon 9 stage returned to Earth and successfully landed on a floating platform.

If everything goes according to plan, then on June 1 at about 14:00 p.m. the ship will dock with the International Space Station: then the astronauts will open the hatches and get on board the ISS, where they will approximately stay from 30 to 110 days.

If something went wrong during the launch, the crew could immediately launch the emergency compartment from the rocket - in this case, Crew Dragon would disconnect the capsule with the astronauts, who would then parachute to land in one of the specific areas in the Atlantic Ocean.
