The first American astronauts to launch on an American rocket from American soil since 2011, Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken are set to arrive at Kennedy Space Center at 16:00 UTC, 12pm Local time on May 20th, 2020.

Crew Dragon Demo-2, (officially known as SpaceX Demo-2 and Crew Demo-2), will be the first crewed test flight of the Crew Dragon spacecraft. Currently scheduled to launch on 27 May 2020 at 4:32 PM EST (20:32 UTC), Crew Dragon Demo-2 will be the first crewed spaceflight to the International Space Station launched from United States soil since the final Space Shuttle mission, STS-135, in 2011, on which Crew Dragon Demo-2’s spacecraft commander, Douglas G. Hurley, was the pilot. Hurley will be joined by joint operations commander Robert L. Behnken. Crew Dragon Demo-2 will also be the first two-person orbital spaceflight launched from United States soil since STS-4 in 1982.
