“We are asking people to join us in this launch, but to do so from home,” NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine said during a press conference yesterday regarding the agency’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As reported by The Verge, "This upcoming launch is set to be a significant achievement for both NASA and the United States. On May 27th, two NASA astronauts — Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken — are set to fly to orbit on a newly developed private spacecraft, built by NASA’s commercial partner SpaceX. Called the Crew Dragon, the capsule is designed to launch on top of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, and take the duo to the International Space Station."
