SpaceX launched four astronauts on a flight to the International Space Station (ISS) on November 15, making this NASA’s first full-fledged mission sending a crew into orbit aboard a privately-owned spacecraft. The Resilience crew includes Michael Hopkins and two fellow NASA astronauts, mission pilot Victor Glover and physicist Shannon Walker. They were joined by Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi. It represents a new era of commercially developed spacecraft–owned and operated by a private entity rather than NASA for sending Americans into orbit. SpaceX’s launch on Sunday was the first of six operational missions for NASA.
