Watch history unfold on Wednesday, May 27, as NASA and SpaceX launch astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley to the International Space Station.

Tune in starting at 12:15 p.m. EDT as NASA and SpaceX provide joint, live coverage from launch to arrival at the space station. Teams are targeting 4:33 p.m. EDT for the launch of the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft atop a Falcon 9 rocket from historic Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Congratulations to the two astronauts for leaving earth today. They made the right choice.
They are gonna stage their own protest in the space station against police brutality. They will use plastic utensils to vandalize the place.

In all seriousness, this launch and subsequent flight to the ISS was a historic moment. Probably not as historic as the Apollo moon landings or the first Space Shuttle flight, but historic in its own way. It was pretty cool to watch. My 8 year old son watched for several hours, glued to the tv.
