American astronauts reached the International Space Station with their own rocket!

Today (31.05.2020) it happened! Two American astronauts, Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, docked at the International Space Station (ISS) with an American rocket. They left yesterday (May 30, 2020) on the Elon Musk Falcon 9 rocket from the Kennedy Space Center. The first attempt was made on 27.05.2020, but it had to be canceled due to bad weather. This is a big thing for Americans because since 2011, they haven’t had their own rocket to send astronauts to the space. When I was in Florida in July 2019 visiting the Kennedy Space Center, Americans talked a lot of need to have their own rocket back. The rocket is from private company called SpaceX. Rocket name is Falcon 9.


The space flight has three particularly dangerous phases: departure, docking, and return. The first two steps have now been successful. American astronauts will return to Earth in 1-4 months. If the return is successful, then there will be a big party in the United States! They do not any longer need Russian rockets to get into space.
