Inside KSC! for Nov. 20, 2020
Mike Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker, and Soichi Noguchi made history on the first crew rotation flight of a U.S. commercial spacecraft with astronauts to the space station. They lifted off from Kennedy Space Center’s Launch Complex 39A on NASA’s SpaceX Crew-1 mission. Also, segments of solid rocket boosters for NASA’s Space Launch System, or SLS, arrived at Kennedy’s iconic Vehicle Assembly Building. The boosters will help support the weight of the remaining rocket pieces and Orion spacecraft.

SpaceX's CRS-21 Mission to the Space Station: What's On Board
The 21st SpaceX cargo resupply mission that will launch from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida carries a variety of critical research and technology demonstrations to the International Space Station. The mission will be the first on an upgraded version of the company’s Dragon cargo spacecraft that can carry more science payloads to and from the orbiting laboratory. The craft's cargo includes critical materials that support research ranging from heart disease to asteroid mining and a new commercial airlock as part of NASA’s goal to achieve a sustainable economy in low-Earth orbit.

NASA's SpaceX Crew-1 For All Recap
The SpaceX Crew Dragon Resilience successfully docked to the International Space Station at 11:01 p.m. EST Monday, transporting NASA astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker, and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) astronaut Soichi Noguchi. NASA’s SpaceX Crew-1 mission lifted off Sunday, Nov. 15, at 7:27 p.m. on the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon spacecraft from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The mission is the first of six certified, crew missions NASA and SpaceX will fly as a part of the agency’s Commercial Crew Program. The crew will conduct science and maintenance during a six-month stay aboard the orbiting laboratory and will return in spring 2021. It is scheduled to be the longest human space mission launched from the United States. The Crew Dragon spacecraft is capable of staying in orbit for at least 210 days, as a NASA requirement.

Soyuz vs. Crew Dragon: Why does SpaceX take so long to dock with the ISS?
The first two crewed mission of the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule have taken between 19 and 30 hours to dock with the International Space Station, however, the Russian Soyuz capsule has demonstrated docking within just three hours. Why does it take so long for SpaceX to dock to the ISS and what goes into the decision making process? I'm discussing that in today's #TwoMinuteTuesday episode. #SpaceX #CrewDragon 7 Differences Between Crew-1 and DM-2: https://youtu.be/ngrdlPrvm7U Connect with me here ➡ https://solo.to/olhzn MEMBERS GET BONUS CONTENT & EXCLUSIVE ACCESS
