SpaceX, Elon Musk's company, and NASA made history. This Saturday, May 30, after the 30-second countdown , astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley took off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, aboard the Falcon 9 rocket and aiming to reach the International Space Station.
The spacecraft departed at 3:22 p.m. (19.22 GMT), and smoothly put the Crew Dragon capsule into orbit about ten minutes later. " Congratulations ... on this first manned trip for Falcon 9, it was incredible, " said Commander Hurley when the Dragon capsule was going 27,000 km / h and was about 200 km high. "Real talent, true genius, no one does this like us," said United States President Donald Trump.
The rocket was scheduled to take off on May 27, but that day they had to abort the launch due to bad weather and on social networks they did not forgive: they mocked Elon Musk and the mission in general. Now, the memes appeared again on Twitter, although this time to celebrate the occasion.

- Now, Madam, stop raving and take the pill.
