More than 300,000 people gathered nearby to watch the historical launch from the Kennedy  Space Center to the International Space Station on Saturday.

The two NASA astronauts’ family and Vice President Pence attended to bid them good luck.

And on Sunday, Douglas Hurley and Robert Behnken, two NASA astronauts arrived at the International Space Station without any inconvenience, even “succeeding sleep.”

Even with bad weather, including thunderstorms and threat of lightning strikes, could not stop the Endeavour and its astronauts.

After more than 2 months of Coronavirus pandemic stress, racial conflict, and economic turmoil, this was a ray of sunshine many Americans needed.

This Project was started since 2014 between SpaceX, Boeing, and NASA, as a way to establish 20 more years of travel between Earth and space.

SpaceX launched Complex 39A before the launch of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon spacecraft at the Kennedy Space Center.

Elon Musk and his SpaceX team opened in the middle of Coronavirus pandemic to complete the project. And For the first time in nearly a decade, a space shuttle took off from American soil.
