6/1/2020- America is back in space

America is back in space. After being scrubbed last Wednesday, Space X and NASA successfully launched the crew Dragon on Saturday, making it the first time since 2011, when NASA retired their space shuttles, that astronauts have entered orbit from American soil. It also marks the first time that astronauts have been launched into orbit in a commercially-built rocket, this time built by Space-X. The two crew members, Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, have both previously been to space. The capsule docked at the International Space Station Sunday morning just after 10 AM.
