May 27, 2020: #LaunchAmerica


Before our Apollo astronauts launched to the Moon, they walked out of these doors at Kennedy Space Center. When NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley board Crew Dragon for the SpaceX Demo-2 mission to the International Space Station, these doors will be used again. Prepare to #LaunchAmerica on May 27.

Family of George Floyd calls for officers to be charged with murder, more than 100,000 dead in America from coronavirus pandemic, and historic SpaceX launch scrubbed due to weather.
