SpaceX mission pinnacle of work started by Obama admin - Biden

Former Vice President Joe Biden (pictured) issued a statement attributing the successful launch of the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule to the work done by the Obama administration.

"This mission represents the culmination of work begun years ago, and which President Obama and I fought hard to ensure would become a reality," Biden wrote. He went on to congratulate the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and SpaceX for the mission, calling it a "victory" for the American "innovation."

The launch made history as it represents the first manned space mission carried out by a private company, also the first mission of the kind to take place on US soil since 2011.
