The Demo-2 Mission is the first crewed flight that SpaceX is undertaking under a multibillion-dollar contract to ferry astronauts to the station for NASA.
NASA and SpaceX completed a flight readiness review (FRR) May 22 that lasted one and a half days.
NASA announced Friday that an exhaustive "flight readiness review" of Wednesday's scheduled launch of a SpaceX rocket with two NASA astronauts aboard had determined that the mission could proceed.
Jurczyk noted that the review ended with "no significant open issues" yet to resolve. "In the end, it was a very, very clean review". However, there were extensive discussions on several topics. "There were conversations that were had that were very important to be had".
US-Russia cooperation is not expected to end once Crew Dragon goes into service. NASA has only one crew member now aboard the station. "And I'm very, very proud of them right now". On Saturday (May 23), for example, mission teams will run through a "dry dress" exercise, which will simulate numerous activities that NASA and SpaceX will perform in the leadup to launch on Wednesday. An analysis of that system concluded that there was a very low risk of a problem.
Now, as the anticipation for the launch reaches a fever pitch, the SpaceX hardware has arrived at Kennedy Space Center and preparations have begun for the launch.

Last year, Hong Kong was rocked by months of protests sparked by a bill that would have allowed extraditions to mainland China . President Donald Trump, when asked about China's moves, pledged to respond "very strongly".
Now, with the launch fast approaching, it's an all-hands-on-deck scenario for SpaceX and NASA staff at Kennedy. Today, during their final pre-flight news briefing, they said they understood the risk trade-offs that NASA and SpaceX were making.
Next up in the preparation sequence is a static test fire, which will be performed sometime later today, and involves firing the Falcon 9's engines while it's on the launchpad to see that there functioning correctly before it takes off. Starliner's failure to make it to the International Space Station during a demo test sealed the deal and made the race SpaceX's to lose. That final rehearsal, she said, is meant to make sure "everything is working days before the launch". Assuming all goes well, the Crew Dragon will dock with the International Space Station a short while later. That includes the Russian space agency Roscosmos, which had concerns past year about the uncrewed Demo-1 mission to the station.
Kathy Lueders, NASA's manager for the commercial crew program, said that a year ago, she probably wouldn't have thought SpaceX could be ready by now.
Jurczyk said Russian and Japanese representatives participated in the meetings via remote links. Eastern May 27. "Human spaceflight is really, really tough".
She added that "we are trying to identify any risks that are out there, and continue to look at risk, and buy them down". "We're going to stay hungry until Bob and Doug come home".
