SpaceX Makes History With First-Ever NASA Astronauts Rocket Launch

Two American NASA astronauts successfully flew to space from the Cape Canaveral space launch site, located in Florida.

They flew with a rocket from the private company SpaceX, and for the crew, the journey will end in 19 hours when it reaches the International Space Station (ISS).

SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket successfully flew with the capsule Dragon, which contains two U.S. astronauts. They are flying toward the International Space Station (ISS), which orbits the Earth at the altitude of 155 miles. The last time a human crew was launched from the United States was in 2011.

On board the Dragon capsule are NASA's astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behken. Hurley was already present on a rocket flight mission back in 2011.

The capsule reached an incredible speed of 16,777 mph (27,000 kph) on the way, and it took exactly 5 minutes and 45 seconds to fly to an altitude of 124 miles (200 km). Take a look at the video showing SpaceX rocket launch!
