At 7:27 p.m. Eastern time, the journey began from the Kennedy Space Center for astronauts Mike Hopkins, Victor Glover and Shannon Walker, from the United States, and Soichi Noguchi, from Japan, to the space station ISS.
The spacecraft that takes them to their destination was manufactured by SpaceX. Earlier this year, two NASA astronauts were sent to the ISS with SpaceX, but this incident is historic because it is the first time astronauts have been sent into space in a privately owned spacecraft to perform a full-fledged operational mission NASA announced.
