Crew Dragon Endeavour approaching ISS (NASA) NASA formally certified SpaceX's Crew Dragon spacecraft Tuesday for missions to the International Space Station. The certification, the culmination of the commercial crew program, came during a flight readiness review for the Crew-1 mission, scheduled to launch Saturday. NASA and SpaceX officials said that mission remains on track despite work on the Falcon 9 upper stage that postponed a static-fire test of the rocket from Tuesday to Wednesday. The mission will transport four astronauts from NASA and JAXA to the ISS for a six-month stay.
