NASA astronauts gear up ahead of historic launch

May 22, 2020 09:25 IST

It's been nearly a decade since NASA astronauts launched into space from US soil but that's to change as Nasa astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken arrive in Florida five days prior to their launch to the International Space Station. They have been quarantining themselves to ensure that they are in top of their health. SpaceX will be providing the rocket and capsule system for the journey, which is a part of the Demo-2 mission. Once at the ISS, the astronauts will work for one to four months before returning back to Earth.
