Army Space and Missile Defense Command supports SpaceX launch with satellite communications

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, carrying the company's Crew Dragon spacecraft, launches from Launch Complex 39A on NASA’s SpaceX Demo-2 mission to the International Space Station with NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley onboard, May 30, at Kennedy Space Center, Florida. The Demo-2 mission is the first launch with astronauts of the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft and Falcon 9 rocket to the International Space Station as part of the agency’s Commercial Crew Program. The test flight serves as an end-to-end demonstration of SpaceX’s crew transportation system. A new era of human spaceflight is set to begin as American astronauts once again launch from American soil on an American rocket to low-Earth orbit for the first time since the conclusion of the Space Shuttle Program in 2011.
