Resilience will be propelled into space by a launcher Falcon 9 SpaceX from Launch Complex 39A at centre spatial Kennedy, in Florida. Its four passengers have a ticket for a stay in the Space Station, “Orbital laboratory”, about six months, until next spring.
Since the success this summer of Crew Dragon demonstration manned flight, with Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley at the helm, the United States has finally regained its total independence for the transport of its astronauts to the complexe orbital. An independence that the country had lost since the the retirement of its space shuttles in 2011.
