SpaceX makes history as first crewed mission lifts off

Elon Musk's private space company SpaceX made history on Saturday as its first crewed mission successfully took off from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley are aboard the Crew Dragon capsule, which will take the pair to the International Space Station.

Today's launch is the first manned mission on US soil since 2011 and the first carried out by a private company. The launch was initially scheduled for last Wednesday but was postponed due to unfavorable weather conditions.
