On Friday, April 23 at 5:49 a.m. EDT, 9:49 UTC, SpaceX and NASA launched Dragon’s second six-month operational crew mission (Crew-2) to the Worldwide Home Station (ISS) from historic Launch Superior 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Home Coronary heart in Florida. Following stage separation, Falcon 9’s first stage landed on the “Of Course I Nonetheless Love You” droneship, stationed inside the Atlantic Ocean.
Crew-2 is in the intervening time in orbit and is anticipated to autonomously dock with the Worldwide Home Station on Saturday, April 24, at roughly 5:10 a.m. EDT, 9:10 UTC.
