Space Travel

“NASA lost the ability to send its astronauts into orbit when the SpaceShuttle was retired back in 2011. That forced the U.S. to book seats onRussia’s Soyuz spacecraft for nearly a decade but that finally changedwhen SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon capsule lifted off from the Kennedy Space Center last Saturday. The launch is being heralded as the start of a new era for American space flight, given that it’s the first time astronauts have been carried into orbit by a spacecraft designed and built privately. Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, the crewmembers on board, safely reached orbit and subsequently docked with the ISS on May 31.”
