NASA confirms Crew Dragon almost ready, mostly paperwork left

Quote

NASA and SpaceX are closing in on the first launch of humans into orbit from US soil since 2011, when the space shuttle made its final flight.

Although the space agency has not yet said so publicly, NASA is working toward a May 7 launch of a Crew Dragon spacecraft carrying astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken to the International Space Station.

SpaceX’s Crew Dragon delivered to Cape Canaveral for first flight with astronauts

Quote

SpaceX’s next Crew Dragon capsule — delivered to Cape Canaveral this week from a California factory — will be the first U.S. spacecraft to carry crews into orbit since 2011, NASA confirmed Friday. The Crew Dragon will lift off as soon as this spring with veteran NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken on a test flight to the International Space Station.

The human-rated spaceship arrived at a test and processing facility at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Thursday following a cross-country trip from SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California.
