16 hours after launch, they will have arrived at the International Space Station (ISS).
NASA successfully launched four astronauts to the International Space Station early Wednesday morning, utilizing a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.
The SpaceX Crew-4 human mission launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 3:52 a.m. this morning, early in the morning. It will dock with the International Space Station around 8:15 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday (ISS).
According to SpaceX, the crew of the “freedom” capsule will complete ten circles of the Earth during their 16-hour journey to the International Space Station.
“Please accept our heartfelt thanks from the bottom of our hearts on behalf of all of you. Allow the Freedom Bell to ring and the Falcon to roar!” It was Commander Kjell Lindgren who made the decision. Even before the recycled booster touched down on an ocean platform, the space capsule was already in a secure orbit around the planet. It had only taken a few minutes for them to get there in the first place. “It was a beautiful experience,” he expressed his gratitude.
