On May 30, 2020, SpaceX launched its Falcon 9 rocket carrying the Crew Dragon spacecraft and NASA Astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley to the International Space Station (ISS) on its second Demonstration (Demo-2) mission. This is the final major test for SpaceX to become NASA certified for conducting operational crew flights to and from the ISS. The launch was originally scheduled for Wednesday, May 27, 2020 at 4:33 p.m. EDT to lift off from Kennedy Space Center Launch Complex 39A, however, due to unfavorable weather conditions, the launch was scrubbed, and the launch was pushed to the backup date of May 30, 2020 at 3:22 p.m. EDT.
