We have updated the news including a video with the time of the takeoff of the ship.
SpaceX Crew-2 is about to take off, NASA’s historic manned mission should take off at 11:49 am CEST (9:49 am UTC) for the International Space Station. SpaceX’s Crew Dragon Endeavor spacecraft will lift off from NASA’s John F. Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
The objective of this mission is to transfer four astronauts to the station, and it will be the first manned mission aboard a SpaceX spacecraft in which an ESA astronaut travels, the European Space Agency.
