American crewed test flight of the Crew Dragon spacecraft, also referred to as SpaceX Demo-2, Crew Demo-2, and Dragon Crew Demo-2. Demo-2 is the first crewed orbital spaceflight launched from the United States since the final Space Shuttle mission, STS-135, in 2011, and also the first ever operated by a commercial provider.
The mission, which launched spacecraft commander Douglas Hurley and joint-operations commander Robert Behnken to the International Space Station, is also the first two-person orbital spaceflight launched from the United States since STS-4 in 1982.
The spacecraft is scheduled to dock with the International Space Station on 31 May 2020 at 10:29 a.m. EDT (14:29 UTC). The first attempt to launch on 27 May 2020 was aborted at T–16:53 minutes due to bad weather caused by Tropical Storm Bertha.
