The launch will occur at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 7:27PM ET (00:27 UTC, November 16).

According to the SpaceX Crew-1 Mission brief, “following Dragon’s second demonstration mission (Demo-2), NASA certified SpaceX for operational crew missions to and from the space station. Crew-1 [launching today] is the first of three scheduled Dragon flights over the course of 2020 and 2021.” The mission will “lay the ground work for missions to the Moon, Mars, and beyond.”
