America Returns to Space
Today, after a delay from earlier this week, America Returns to the Space. For almost a decade we have had to use the Russian Space Program as an Uber to the International Space Station. Today marks new era of human spaceflight is set to begin as American astronauts once again launch on an American rocket from American soil to the International Space Station as part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program. NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley will fly on SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft, lifting off on a Falcon 9 rocket at 3:22 p.m. EDT May 30, from Launch Complex 39A in Florida, for an extended stay at the space station for the Demo-2 mission. The specific duration of the mission is to be determined.
Lifting off from Launch Pad 39A atop a specially instrumented Falcon 9 rocket, Crew Dragon will accelerate its two passengers to approximately 17,000 mph and put it on an intercept course with the International Space Station. Once in orbit, the crew and SpaceX mission control will verify the spacecraft is performing as intended by testing the environmental control system, the displays, and the control system and the maneuvering thrusters, among other things. In about 24 hours, Crew Dragon will be in a position to rendezvous and dock with the space station. The spacecraft is designed to do this autonomously but astronauts aboard the spacecraft and the station will be diligently monitoring approach and docking and can take control of the spacecraft if necessary.
This all didn’t happen by accident, this is a direct result of the Space Programs biggest fan, President trump and Vice President Mike Pence. This administration made Space a Priority, as a result we are back in the Space Exploration business. We the Montgomery County Republican Club would like to say Thank You President Trump and Vice President Pence.
