Aerospace Company SpaceX has successfully launched a Falcon 9 missile with Crew Dragon.

The relevant video launcher is posted on YouTube.

It is known that the missile started from Cape Canaveral. Crew Dragon, depending on the equipment, can deliver in the orbit of a crew of 4 or 7 people and can hold in an internally fitted state for more than 200 days.

The Falcon 9 missile from Crew Dragon started at 10:49 from Cape Canaveral. There are no people on board the Crew Dragon mission of the DM-1 mission (Demo-1), but in one of the four armchairs a dummy went into orbit in the Ripley suit, which carries a host of sensors. Approximately 10 minutes after the launch of the rocket, the first degree returned to Earth.

Docking of the ship from the ISS should take place on Sunday, March 3. After docking with the International Space Station, Crew Dragon will spend almost one week in orbit and then return to Earth. The mission of the DM-1 will end with the crew dragon flooding in the Atlantic Ocean, 390 kilometers east of Cape Canaveral, on Friday, March 8.

It is expected that after the test flights without crew, the ships will begin to manned flights to the ISS (for SpaceX such a flight will take place not earlier than June, and Boeing will send astronauts into orbit in August).  In Ukrainian/український
