Posted: Sun, May 3, 2020, 2:09 PM ET (1809 GMT)
SpaceX Crew Dragon launch illustration (SpaceX) NASA and SpaceX officials said Friday they were ready for a crewed test flight of the company's Crew Dragon spacecraft late this month. In a series of briefings, officials said they were wrapping up tests and reviews of the spacecraft, including a final parachute test that took place that day. The launch of the Demo-2 mission is scheduled for May 27, pending completion of a final set of reviews in the coming weeks. The astronauts on that mission, Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, will stay on the station for up to several months in order to provide more crew time on the station, which currently has only three people on board. The length of the mission will depend on station activities and the health of the Crew Dragon spacecraft docked there.
