SpaceX is ready to launch more astronauts with Crew-2 next month

SpaceX’s second fully-crewed astronaut flight, Crew-2, is prepared for launch, mission team members said Monday (March 1) during a news briefing. 

Crew-2, which is set to launch April 20, follows the company’s Demo-2 launch in May 2020, the first crewed test flight for SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft, and Crew-1 launch in November 2020, which saw the company’s first fully crewed mission to space. Like Crew-2, these missions took place as part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program.
