WATCH LIVE: SpaceX launches NASA astronauts to space for the first time

SpaceX, Elon Musk’s company, plans to launch two NASA astronauts on Saturday — the first crewed mission in SpaceX history. The mission, called Demo-2, is technically the final test flight of the company’s spacecraft. Regardless of the nature of the mission, Demo-2 will be the first launch of NASA astronauts from the U.S. since 2011. Earlier scheduled for Wednesday, the SpaceX launch director decided at approximately 4:16 p.m. ET to postpone the launch of Crew Dragon and the Demo-2 mission due to weather concerns.
