SpaceX Crew-1 Astronauts Arrive at Kennedy Space Center ahead of Historic Launch

SpaceX Crew-1 Mission astronauts of NASA & JAXA arrived at @NASAKennedy in Florida, ahead of the November 14th launch, at 7:49PM. The crew had left from NASA’s location in Houston. 


“Go Falcon, go Dragon, and go Resilience!” — Victor Glover (Pilot of the Resilience & Second in Command) 


This will be Glover’s first spaceflight. 

The team will continue regular tests and preparations leading up to the launch of the Resilience.  Noted, they have been training for this SpaceX launch for two years specifically and training in general for many years. 


The crew has already undergone a quarantine period leading up to this launch. 


“I think you, if you want to be a leader in space, we need to be able to launch our own astronauts into space,” — Mike Hopkins (Resilience Crew Commander, White badge) 

 

 


Soichi Noguchi will be the first JAXA international representative and Shannon Walker the first female to be part of the crew Dragon missions. Walker & Noguchi are the Mission Specialists, both having had prior spaceflights. 




Ad Astra for a much anticipated flight, the world will be watching & supporting.
