NASA and SpaceX are set to send Crew-2 astronauts to the space station on Earth Day

SpaceX and NASA are officially “set” to proceed with the launch of four astronauts to the International Space Station next week, with the completion of a critical flight readiness review on Thursday (April 15).

The Crew-2 mission is scheduled to take off next Thursday (April 22), which is also Earth Day. A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon spacecraft will launch from historic Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. It will be the second flight for this particular Crew Dragon; the same capsule, called “Endeavor,” carried NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley to and from the space station last year for the Demo-2 test flight.
