Escape from the coronavirus to space

On May 27, the Falcon 9 rocket with the Crew Dragon spacecraft will be launched from Launch Complex 39A in Florida. This time it will be a manned mission.

For the first time in 10 years, American astronauts will go to the ISS on an American spacecraft. After the closing of the Space Shuttle program, only Russian Soyuz spacecrafts delivered people to the ISS.

This mission will be important for SpaceX as well, as it will be the first flight of the Crew Dragon with people on board, and there is no chance for Ilona Mask's company to make a mistake.

Astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley will go to the ISS on May 27. How long they will stay on board the ISS is not yet decided, but the Crew Dragon can stay in orbit for about 110 days.
