SpaceX just scored another achievement on the way to its first-ever crew mission launch one week from now.
Elon Musk’s organization is preparing for the Wednesday (May 27) launch of the Demo-2 mission, which will send NASA space explorers Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley to the International Space Station (ISS) on board a SpaceX Crew Dragon case.
Recently (May 22), the organization played out a “static fire” trial of the Falcon 9 rocket that will launch Demo-2, starting up the promoter’s first-stage motors quickly on the pad at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
The static fire happened only a couple of hours after NASA, ISS and SpaceX groups wrapped up a basic, two-day flight readiness review (FRR), which pronounced Demo-2 clear for its arranged May 27 liftoff.
There are as yet a couple boxes to look at throughout the following not many days, be that as it may. On Saturday (May 23), for instance, mission will go through a “dry dress” work out, which will recreate a significant number of the exercises that NASA and SpaceX will act in the leadup to dispatch on Wednesday. Behnken and Hurley will get ready for the dry dress, organization authorities said.
Also, on Monday (May 25) comes the last launch status audit, which will fuse examinations of the information from the static fire and the dry dress alongside other data, NASA authorities said.
