Dragon-2 (DM-1 mission) spacecraft launched to ISS.
20:00

On March 2, 2019 at 07:49 UTC the "Falcon 9” rocket-carrier was launched from Kennedy Space Center (LC39A), Florida, USA. The launch was performed by the "SpaceX” private company supported by the 45th Space Wing of US Air Force. The rocket orbited the “Crew Dragon” (or “Dragon-2”) unpiloted spacecraft (Mission Demo-1 or SpX-X-DM1). It is the first demonstration test flight of the “Crew Dragon”. Crew Dragon – which is also known as “Dragon-2” – is an evolution of the current “Dragon” spacecraft used for cargo and logistics missions to the International Space Station under Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) contracts. The “Dragon-2” (DM-1 mission) is to dock with the ISS on March 3 to test the spacecraft’s docking systems and procedures.
