The SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft for its first crew launch from American soil has arrived at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Since the retirement of the Space Shuttle program, NASA has relied exclusively on the Russian space agency Roscosmos for rides to the station on its Soyuz capsule.

SpaceX's Crew Dragon arrives in Florida for testing ahead of a human test flight in the coming months. That test was by all accounts a success, showing how the Crew Dragon would separate and distance itself from the launch craft in case of an unexpected error, in order to safeguard the astronauts onboard.

NASA and SpaceX are preparing for the company's first flight test with astronauts to the International Space Station as part of the agency's Commercial Crew Program.

US denounces detention in Venezuela of Guaido's uncle
AN IRISH MEP has been reprimanded for his use of some fairly unparliamentary language during a sitting of the European Parliament .

NASA's Commercial Crew Program has worked with several American aerospace industry companies to facilitate the development of US human spaceflight systems since 2010. The capsule will launch atop another piece of SpaceX equipment, a Falcon 9 rocket. After that, only Russian Soyuz rockets delivered crews to the ISS.

The commercial crew program has faced issues in the past, such as the recent orbital test flight of the Boeing Starliner capsule which had several problems. The company completed a critical in-flight safety test of the capsule abort system earlier this year - paving the way for the crewed flight.

The capsule set for the human launch is now at a SpaceX processing facility on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station after departing from the company's manufacturing facility in Hawthorne, California. The first manned Crew Dragon mission is targeted for May 7, as reported by Ars Technica.
