US President Donald Trump will travel to Florida to attend the SpaceX missile launch next week. This was reported by Fox News with reference to a statement by the White House.
The SpaceX Falcon 9 booster rocket and Crew Dragon spacecraft are preparing to deliver NASA astronauts into space from the United States. This flight will be the first manned launch of an American spacecraft since 2011.
This is also the first time that a private company, not a national government, has sent astronauts into orbit.
It is noted that NASA astronauts will fly on a new spaceship for the fifth time in US history.
“A new era is beginning for manned space travel,” NASA said in a statement.
