Four astronauts head to the launchpad at the Kennedy Space Center on Sunday before a successful blast off on the SpaceX Dragon capsule. They arrived at the International Space Station the night of Nov. 16 after a 27-hour voyage on the spacecraft dubbed “Resilience.’’ It’s the first mission for NASA’s Commercial Crew Program and SpaceX. The crew is made up of pilot Victor Glover, mission specialist Shannon Walker, spacecraft commander Michael Hopkins and mission specialist Soichi Noguchi. They will be there six months. Glover is the first Black astronaut to live aboard the International Space Station.
