With the Elon Musk rocket the United States returns to bring men into space. Trump also applauds in Cape Canaveral. The booster returned and landed vertically on the platform, on Sunday the arrival on the International Space Station
Tomorrow in the Iss
The capsule continues its journey towards the Space Station: the arrival is expected after about 20 hours and the docking maneuver is expected at 4:27 pm tomorrow; just over two hours later, at 18.45, the hatch is expected to open. To welcome Hurley and Behnken on board the Space Station there will be the American Chris Cassidy and the Russians Anatoli Ivanishin and Ivan Vagner.
Just the beginning
The mission, called Demo2, is the second test of the Crew Dragon capsule, which in March 2019 had made the first unmanned test flight, directed to the Space Station. On that occasion he had brought over 180 kilograms of materials and supplies on board: no astronaut but only a manikin, Ripley, who with his sensors had provided useful data on the stresses that future astronauts destined to fly on the capsule would undergo. Inevitable that from now on the launches will repeat, with the aim of reaching a lunar station in 2030.
