Since the spacecraft launched last night, it has progressed according to the original plan. This is the first launch of space astronauts by a private company
Make history: Bob Benken and Doug Hurley, the astronaut duo in Space X's spacecraft launched Saturday night into space, managed to dock today (17:22) at the International Space Station after 19 hours of flight, and hours before mooring reported that all systems were working properly.
The two will join three crew members, astronaut Christopher Cassidy of NASA, and two Russian cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Wagner, who have been waiting for them at the space station. The Dragon 2 spacecraft can stay in space for more than 210 days, but the duration of the stay for Bencken and Harley is unknown And can last up to about 4 months.
"It's a real honor to be a small part of this nine-year-old since the last time an American spacecraft docked at the International Space Station," Hurley said after completing docking at the space station.
The spacecraft launched on a three-day delay from the Kennedy Space Station due to weather conditions, but as soon as it departed it proceeded as planned. The spacecraft, developed by the company owned by entrepreneur and billionaire Elon Musk, has recorded a historic achievement since it was, for the first time ever, launching astronauts who run a private company rather than a political party. It is also the first time since 2011 that a manned spacecraft has been launched from the United States.

US President Donald Trump and his deputy Mike Pence have come to watch the historic launch. Given that even in the US, the Corona virus is raging, the current event took place without spectators to prevent mass infection.
