🔴LIVE | SpaceX launch to space May 27, 2020

Updated: May 27, 2020

The Commercial Crew Program brings a new era of space exploration to the Space Coast of Florida. For this historic mission, Americans once again launch from U.S. soil for the first time since the conclusion of the Space Shuttle Program.

SpaceX will send two NASA astronauts, Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, on a test mission to help prove the systems meet NASA’s requirements for certification to carry astronauts to the ISS and back.

The Dragon Capsule aligns its inertial measurement units and is configured for launch
2: 04:30:00 

The Crew Dragon hypergolic fuels for reaction control thrusters and the superdraco abort motors are pressurized for flight

3: 04:15:00 

The Crew hears a weather briefing before they suit up

4: 04:05:00  

The Crew is officially handed off from NASA to SpaceX, which is bit of a formality signifying the astronauts are officially in SpaceX’s hands

5: 04:00:00 

The crew suits up at Kennedy Space Center’s Neil Armstrong Operations and Checkout Building

6: 03:22:00 

The crew leaves the building and gets into the NASA and SpaceX’s Tesla Model X crew transportation vehicles. In other words, the crew gets suited up and ready to go in just 38 minutes, which is faster than most of us get ready for work in the morning

7: 03:15:00 

The crew departs the Ops and checkout building and heads the 13.6 km (8.5 miles) to historic Launch Complex 39A

8: 02:55:00   

The crew arrives at the pad. Since they will travel about 13.6 km in 20 minutes, it means they’ll only average around 40 km/h COME ON, they should turn on ludicrous mode and really put on a show!

9: 02:40:00  

The crew will do the ultimate walk across the Crew Access Arm, hopefully in slow mo so we get some awesome cinematic footage

10: 02:35:00 

The crew enters the Dragon

11: 02:20:00  

Communications check between the crew and the ground
