Demo-2 is the final major test for SpaceX’s human spaceflight system to be certified by NASA for operational crew missions to and from the International Space Station. SpaceX is returning human spaceflight to the United States with one of the safest, most advanced systems ever built, and NASA’s Commercial Crew Program is a turning point for America’s future in space exploration that lays the groundwork for future missions to the Moon, Mars, and beyond.

NASA ASTRONAUTS PAY TRIBUTE TO SPACEX AND GRADUATES FROM SPACE STATION Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 63 Commander Chris Cassidy of NASA and newly arrived crewmates Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken of NASA offered their thanks and congratulations to SpaceX officials and employees during an in-flight event from the orbital outpost June 1. Hurley and Behnken became the first American astronauts to launch on an American spacecraft from American soil in almost a decade May 31 when they lifted off aboard the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket in the new SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida. Hurley and Behnken spoke with Benji Reed, the SpaceX Director of Crew Mission Management, before displaying a picture flown on Crew Dragon that contained a photo mosaic of photos graduates from around the nation – honoring those who graduated this spring during the coronavirus pandemic.
