A historic moment took place today, as SpaceX experienced a successful launch of two NASA astronauts into space so they could go on a mission to the International Space Station.
The effort was a second attempt, and marks the first crewed spaceflight to leave American soil in almost a decade.
The last mission was in 2011, and the launch also marks the first ever crewed mission for SpaceX.
What’s more, it is also the first time a privately developed spacecraft has launched humans into the Earth’s orbit.
