Congratulations to NASA’s Kennedy space centre for the successful launch of Dragon, Space X, Falcon 9, from Florida, USA. The initial launch was scheduled for May 25th, however; with complication surrounding the weather, the opportunity for launch took place on May 30th 2020 @3:22PM EDT. We are happy and proud of all the crew members, supports, staff and developers who enabled the successful launch and mission. This was a commemorative day as this is the first launch that has taken place in 9 years from American soil to the International Space Station (ISS). Dragon which is named Endeavour, has docked successfully at the Harmony port. We are thankful and celebrate this success, and continue to wish for a successful and safe mission for crew members Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley, as well as those who are part of this mission on Earth too.
This launch was the most watched online event. I was also happy to watch the moments leading up to the count-down, and the launch. Below are my memories to share! #LAUNCHAMERICA 🚀

UPDATE | On August 2nd, 2020, SPACE X DRAGON returned home safely with crew members Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken. Congratulations upon a safe mission, splash-down in the Gulf of Mexico, and safe landing of the Spacecraft in Pensacola, Florida. This was truly a historic moment especially when we reflect that humans can travel faster to Space, than to various part / regions of the world. CONGRATULATIONS!
