A New Era of Space Exploration for America
On May 31, 2020, at 3:22 PM (ET), the Crew Dragon space shuttle of SpaceX named "Falcon 9" launched into orbit in space. The astronaut crew that operated the inside of the SpaceX spacecraft consisted of NASA astronauts Col. Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken.
The Falcon 9 space vehicle launched from Launch Complex 39A, a launching pad that was used to launch many previous successful space shuttles. This recent achievement by NASA would not be made possible if it weren't for SpaceX's provision of the Crew Dragon spacecraft "Falcon 9."
According to an official video released by NASA on Twitter, it has been almost a decade since America launched an American spacecraft into space. Vice President Mike Pence, the speaker in the video, extended his congratulatory message in the NASA video.
The vice president has also stated in another official NASA video of NASA's future plans, saying that it is America's goal to go back to the Moon and devise a way to land on Mars finally.
The name of this new space exploration program is the Artemis program, as stated by the American President Donald Trump. He announced that the Artemis program will commence by 2024 and that the first female astronaut to reach the Moon will be of an American lineage.
Trump has also announced the safe arrival of the two Crew Dragon astronauts into Earth's lower orbit, telling all of America the breakthrough that it has achieved. Many people have expressed their positive sentiments and appraisals on the matter, including the official Twitter page of Times Square.
Times Square has stated its gratitude to NASA and SpaceX for successfully completing the Launch America program of the Crew Dragon space shuttle Falcon 9.
