Flight

Launch from Cape Canaveral (KSC). ISS Expedition 63. The first launch attempt, on May 27, 2020 was scrubbed due to unfavorable weather conditions.

The SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft launched on a Falcon 9 rocket from historic Launch Complex 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. This is SpaceX's final test flight of NASA's Commercial Crew Program and will provide data on the performance of the Falcon 9 rocket, Crew Dragon spacecraft and ground systems, as well as in-orbit, docking and landing operations. The test flight also will provide valuable data toward NASA certifying SpaceX's crew transportation system for regular flights carrying astronauts to and from the space station. SpaceX currently is readying the hardware for the first rotational mission, Crew-1, which would happen after data from this mission is reviewed for NASA's certification.
The Crew Dragon docked to the space station at 14:29 UTC on May 31, 2020. With docking to the International Space Station Douglas Hurley and Robert Behnken became Flight Engineers of Expedition 63.
