Spacex first manned mission to the ISS using a reusable rocket

SpaceX, a company owned by billionaire Elon Musk, has now sent people to space using a reusable rocket! The names of the astronaut's Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, the mission was called Demo-2. The name of the space ship was the crew dragon 1, launched from Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The crew had a wake-up call at 7:40 a.m. EDT at which they began preparing for the flight. The actual launch happened a couple of hours after. The Dragon trunk or the rocket that propels the main dragon module containing the astronauts, detached at 1:51 PM Eastern Daylight Time, this process went smoothly then they went on to the second stage which was Deorbital burn, which is basically when the object is beginning to enter earth's atmosphere after being inside space, starts to heat up due to the particles located in earths atmosphere colliding with the object. This process began at 1:56 p.m EDT. At around 2:36 pm EDT reentry fully begins, and the rocket prepares to make its way back to earth. The main parachute deploys at around 2:45 PM EDT in order to slow the velocity of the rocket down, so the impact does not damage potential components since the rocket is reusable. The rocket officially landed in the ocean at around 2:48 p.m. EDT, with hundreds of SpaceX employees and earthlings waiting to receive them. It was a successful flight, and the astronaut's Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley returned to earth safely.
