    Over 48 hours ago NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken were bobbing in the Gulf of Mexico inside SpaceX Dragon capsule and today the pair conducted a live Q&A. The duo took a number questions about the splashdown experience, their first meal and revealed if their long-standing friendship lasted while on the International Space Station. Once deorbit began, Behnken described seeing white clouds rushing by the window and heard the capsule pushing through the atmosphere, which he likened to that of an animal noise. The pair dined on pizza when they were whisked away to NASA headquarters in Houston and Hurley happily shared that he and Behken are still close friends. Scroll down for videos  Over 48 hours ago...
    NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley just done a check flight of SpaceX’s new Crew Dragon spaceship. The Crew Dragon survived a fiery plunge by Earth’s environment, deployed its parachutes, and landed in the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday – a process that SpaceX CEO Elon Musk identified as his “biggest concern” for the mission. Check out the reentry and landing of the world’s 1st crewed business spaceship in the video underneath. Stop by Company Insider’s homepage for a lot more tales. SpaceX and NASA just achieved a historic feat: the 1st-at any time crewed business spaceflight mission.

    The two astronauts will wait for rescue boats in the waters of the Florida coast Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken began undocking the Dragon Endeavor capsule from the International Space Station on Saturday to return home. The first contact of American astronauts with the planet’s surface will be on the waters off the coast of Florida (Southeast USA) around 14:40 local time this Sunday. A successful landing will be seen as a sign that the United States has, in return, an efficient system for putting crew into orbit and achieving their return. A quality that had not been seen since 2011, when the country gave up continuing to use ferries. 10 keys to the historic mission of SpaceX and...
    When NASA started the Commercial Crew Program in 2010, the goal was to get private-sector companies to produce the most cost-effective, innovative and safe way to get astronauts to the International Space Station.  The program was structured as a multi-tiered competition, with companies bidding for NASA contracts to build the space transportation systems under specific parameters set forth by the agency. NASA eventually awarded the contracts to SpaceX and Boeing.  For nearly a decade, SpaceX and Boeing have been neck and neck, building and testing their crew transportation systems. But SpaceX's successful launch in May marked a major milestone for the company, leaving Boeing to play catch up. It was the first time that NASA astronauts took off from U.S. soil since...
    In Might 2020, the Crew Dragon turned the initial space vehicle to start humans from American soil in nine decades. Created by Elon Musk’s SpaceX, it truly is part of Nasa’s strategy to hand more than room station flights to personal firms. This is our guide to the car or truck. Limited presentational gray lineMoreElon Musk says human spaceflight had normally been the basic intention for his revolutionary enterprise SpaceX. The entrepreneur achieved that ambition on Saturday 30 May well 2020, when the Crew Dragon spacecraft carried Nasa astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken into orbit for a rendezvous with the Worldwide House Station (ISS). It was the first crewed car or truck to fly from US soil because the...

    Workers discovered a time capsule dating back to 1894 while dismantling what was left of a 75-foot Confederate monument in Raleigh, North Carolina. The massive structure was destroyed during Black Lives Matter protests in late June and officials ordered the removal of the remains due to its 'painful memory.' However, the event led experts to a rusty metal box found in the base that contains a number of artifacts belonging to the Confederate army including songbooks, money and flags. Archaeologists also uncovered a set of buttons that belonged to General Robert E. Lee, along with a strand of hair from his horse, Traveler.  Scroll down for videos  Workers discovered a time capsule dating back to 1894 while dismantling what was...
    A new startup will launch tourists to new heights by flying them 10,000 feet into the stratosphere inside a pressurized capsule attached to a massive balloon. Space Perspective announced Thursday the development of its 'Spaceship Neptune' that holds nine people and a mini bar, all of which will be encased in large windows. The 'cruise' would entail a two-hour ascent into the atmosphere, where it will then hover over the Atlantic Ocean for another two hours. Unmanned test flights are set to begin in early 2021 and the firm hopes to sell tickets starting in 2024 – but they may cost around $125,000.

    By MARCIA DUNN CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — SpaceX delivered two astronauts to the International Space Station for NASA on Sunday, following up a historic liftoff with an equally smooth docking in yet another first for Elon Musk’s company. With test pilots Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken poised to take over manual control if necessary, the SpaceX Dragon capsule pulled up to the station and docked automatically, no assistance needed. The linkup occurred 262 miles (422 kilometers) above the China-Mongolia border. ”Congratulations on a phenomenal accomplishment and welcome to the International Space Station,” SpaceX Mission Control radioed from Hawthorne, California. It was the first time a privately built and owned spacecraft carried astronauts to the orbiting lab in its nearly...
    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.

With test pilots Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken poised to take over manual control if necessary, the SpaceX Dragon capsule pulled up to the station and docked automatically, no assistance needed. It was the first time a privately built and owned spacecraft carried astronauts to the orbiting lab in its nearly 20 years. NASA considers this the opening volley in a business revolution encircling Earth and eventually stretching to the moon and Mars. The docking occurred just 19 hours after a SpaceX Falcon...
    The historic SpaceX capsule has docked at the International Space Station (ISS) on Sunday morning, less than 24 hours after liftoff from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The Crew Dragon spacecraft carrying NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken, was scheduled to dock into the orbiting platform at around 10:30 a.m. ET. But the capsule reached the station around 15 minutes ahead of schedule, with SpaceX confirming in a livestream that the capsule docked at 10:16 a.m. ET. The docking was fully automated, but the astronauts had slipped back into their pressurized launch suits and shutting their helmet visors for the docking in case of a problem.

    By MARCIA DUNN CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — SpaceX’s astronaut-riding Dragon capsule approached the International Space Station on Sunday, just hours after a historic liftoff from Florida. NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken reported that the capsule was performing beautifully, as they closed in for the docking. The gleaming white capsule was easily visible from the station, its nose cone open exposing its docking hook, as the two spacecraft zoomed a few miles apart above the Atlantic, then Africa, then Asia. It’s the first time a privately built and owned spacecraft is carrying crew to the orbiting lab. Hurley, the Dragon’s commander, prepared to take manual control for a brief test, then shift the capsule into automatic for the...

    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - Astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken join NASA’s exclusive inner circle by catching a ride on a SpaceX rocket and capsule. It’s only the fifth time that NASA has put people aboard a brand new spacecraft line for liftoff. And it’s the first time the spacecraft belongs to a for-profit company in charge of the launch. Their destination is the International Space Station, where they’ll spend one to four months before guiding their capsule to a splashdown in the Atlantic.

    It is another cliffhanger at Cape Canaveral Saturday as two veteran NASA astronauts sit strapped into their state-of-the-art SpaceX capsule for the historic Demo-2 Mission launch this afternoon. But once again, rainy Florida weather is hanging over the Kennedy Space Center, threatening to derail the mission. Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken, best friends since 2000 and both married to astronauts, rolled up to launch pad 39A in the early afternoon. They’re ready for a mission to the International Space Station with Elon Musk’s space venture that will be the first time a private company has sent humans into orbit. But before they got in the Teslas taking them to launch pad, Behnken said goodbye to his 6-year-old son Theodore. Behnken...
