Why now is a good time for a SpaceX astronaut trip to space

While this is not an easy moment in history, it might actually be the ideal time to launch a crewed mission to space, astronauts and space exploration experts say. 

From a pandemic that has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives worldwide to civil rights issues in the United States, this is a difficult time for many. So, it might seem odd or inopportune for SpaceXand NASA to launch the Demo-2 mission, which is sending veteran NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley to the International Space Station from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center aboard SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule.
