History is being made today as NASA and SpaceX prepares to launch America, almost quite literally, into space. As described by ABC News' program, the SpaceX Demo-2 launch is scheduled for liftoff at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The Crew Dragon spacecraft, propelled by a Falcon 9 rocket, will carry NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley to the International Space Station. A successful launch today will mark the end of a nearly 10-year long U.S. dependency on Russia for seats to space and the potential beginning of more private space firms launching astronauts in the future.
