SpaceX: After nearly a decade, America is ready to create history once again. This time, the US space agency NASA is going to send its astronauts to the International Space Station on Sunday through Elon Musk’s company SpaceX ‘s Dragon Spacecraft, which will be live streaming. Earlier at 2:03 pm on May 27, 2020, NASA had to send two American astronauts to the space station with a Falcon rocket. However, the launch was postponed 16 minutes earlier due to bad weather.
Now this launching will be done again on Sunday at 12:52 M (IST). Its live broadcast can be seen at NASA TV’s Space X launch. Apart from this, live streaming of the launching can also be seen at the Watch Party of the Museum of Flight. Coverage will begin Saturday at 8:30 p.m. (IST) and run until 12:52 on May 31. NASA said that a feed for the launching and docking operation will be given on the media channel. There will be a press conference about the launch around 4 am. Live coverage of Space X can be viewed on its site. Coverage will begin two hours before launching.
Currently, the US takes recourse to Russia and European countries to send its astronauts into space. This is the first time that astronauts are being sent to space through a private company instead of the government. With this launch, the US space agency NASA is going to resume its commercial crew program after 9 years. After the success of this mission, the US would neither have to resort to the rockets of Russia and European countries nor spend crores and billions of rupees for not sending its astronauts to the space station.
SpaceX, On July 27, 2011, NASA stopped its space shuttle program after the space shuttle Atlantis returned to Earth. More than 300 astronauts were sent to space by taking 135 flights to the space station through a 30-year space shuttle program.
