What happened with the first attempt?
Last May 27, he painted to be the most important day of this year, pues Elon Musk’s company, SpaceX and NASA had the Demo-2 mission planned, which was basically to launch the Crew Dragon capsule to the International Space Station, in order to check the viability of commercial space travel, the dream of many interested in what is beyond our planet.
Unfortunately and as we saw that Wednesday, the weather prevented last minute astronauts Bob Behnken and Douglas Hurley departed for the space, leaving us clothed and rowdy because we even had David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” at full volume to accompany them. It’s more, not even the memes forgave us to get excited with the launch and nothing else happened.

However, since it became known that the plans had been postponed for the time being, SpaceX and NASA announced that a second launch attempt would be made, now on Saturday, May 30. at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. On this occasion –and apparently to take advantage of the good weather–, the astronauts will depart from the platform 39A much earlier than the original plans.
After all this, it is contemplated that Crew Dragon crew, to be powered by the Falcon 9 rocket, arrive at the International Space Station on Sunday, May 31, where astronauts will spend a while – to be exact until August – before returning to Earth.
