This is expected to be the first launch of US astronauts from the United States since the NASA space shuttle program ended in 2011. However, the plan failed due to bad weather.

President Donald Trump went to Florida to observe the launch. Billionaire Musk and Vice President Mike Pence also attended. NASA head Jim Bridenstine said it was impossible to launch the ship due to too much charge in the atmosphere.
The two astronauts Hurley and Behnken have been sitting in the cabin for more than 2 hours after the anticipated launch event over the past week, eating breakfast with steak and eggs, and using NASA astronauts for the first time. Tesla cars move to the launch pad.
The next launch, which will take place at noon on May 30 (local time), is scheduled to take NASA astronauts on Earth for a 19-hour trip to the International Space Station (ISS).
