NASA astronauts perform one last dress rehearsal for SpaceX launch next week

Two NASA astronauts climbed inside their SpaceX spaceship today (May 23) for one last rehearsal ahead of a historic launch into orbit next week. 

Astronauts Bob Behknen and Doug Hurley (along with NASA and SpaceX mission teams) performed the “dry run” test for their upcoming test flight on a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule. The mission, NASA’s first crewed launch from U.S. soil since 2011, will launch from Pad 39A of Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Wednesday (May 27) at 4:33 p.m. EDT (2033 GMT).
