SpaceX will launch its first crewed mission as early as May

NASA and SpaceX are targeting the first crewed launch of the Dragon 2 capsule on a mission to the ISS for this May (though this may be delayed). This will be the first time that American astronauts traveled to the ISS on an American spacecraft since the Space Shuttle in 2011. The Dragon 2 capsule successfully completed an unmanned test flight to the ISS in March 2019.
