SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket launches the Crew-3 mission on November 10, 2021.
SpaceX launched four astronauts to the International Space Station from Florida on Wednesday evening, as the company keeps up a steady pace of crewed missions.
Known as Crew-3, the mission for NASA will bring the quartet to the ISS for a six-month stay in orbit on the research laboratory. SpaceX launched the astronauts in its Crew Dragon capsule on top of a Falcon 9 rocket.
“It was a great ride – better than we imagined,” NASA astronaut and Crew Dragon commander Raja Chari told mission control after the launch.
