First US Manned Space Flight in 10 years Goes Up Next Month

Recommended Posts

NASA astronauts Bob Behnken, left, and Doug Hurley, wearing SpaceX spacesuits

After 10 years, We finally have a manned spaceflight going up from Kennedy Space Center, courtesy of Spacex. The new spacesuits look to be a good bit smaller than the suits the shuttle crews wore early in the program. The astronauts are Col. Bob Behnken, USAF and Col. Doug Hurley, USMC.  Unfortunately, Highway 1 will be the only point where the general public can view the launch, as KSC is closed to visitors, thanks to the Chicom virus. Having been to a few launches during my time in Florida, I still wish I lived there. I believe a few GCF members live near KSC, so who will be watchinglive?

We are concerned about all of of the people who will be packed in along US1 by the river to see it.   Fortunately I can watch from my back yard.
