July 8, 2011 was the last time anyone saw humans launch into space from American soil. Space Shuttle Atlantis took 4 astronauts, among them was Doug Hurley. Now making his way back into the history books, along with Bob Behnken in the first launch with crew, since.

The NASA Worm logo is out of retirement. More so, not just on your everyday retailer’s apparel. Another historical mark in the upcoming launch. What a way to send off the next American Astronauts on an American rocket from American soil. Well done, NASA! We love it!

This Falcon 9 rocket booster, B1058 will be it’s first spaceflight and a historical one at that. All human spaceflights will not use previously used rocket boosters and Crew Dragon 2s. They both, however, will be reused for other payloads and resupply missions.

We are all excited and pumped for our next frontier of science and space exploration.
