SpaceX’s astronaut missions for NASA: Live updates

Since its first crewed flight in 2020, SpaceX has continued to launch astronauts to the International Space Station and return them home to Earth within a partnership with NASA.

In 2011, NASA contracted both SpaceX and Boeing to create vehicles to ferry astronauts to the orbiting space station and back. ON, MAY 30, 2020, SpaceX launched the test flight of its first crewed mission, called Demo-2, which sent a couple of NASA astronauts to the station aboard the business’s Crew Dragon vehicle atop a Falcon 9 rocket.

Following a successful crewed test flight, SpaceX has sent numerous fully-crewed, operational missions to the area station. The initial of the fully-fledged missions was Crew-1 launched in Nov. 2020 accompanied by Crew-2 in April, 2021, Crew-3 in Nov. 2021 and Crew-4 in April, 2022.

Here, Space.com will share the most recent updates on SpaceX’s crewed missions.
