A SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule with 4 astronauts docked Wednesday at the International Space Station (ISS)

NASA reports that a private SpaceX company’s Crew Dragon capsule with four astronauts on board is docked at the International Space Station (ISS) 16 hours after liftoff. Harrison Schmidt, a member of the last Apollo mission to the Moon, was present at the launch.

A dragon, dubbed “Freedom,” took off from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida with a two-man and two-woman crew aboard for the first time. The three crew members are NASA astronauts Jill Lindgren, Bob Hines and Jessica Watkins. The European Space Agency (ESA) represents Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti.

Watkins will be the first African-American woman to spend a significant amount of time in space.

The flight to the International Space Station took just 16 hours and was one of the shortest of its kind. Both the flight itself and the mooring to the station took place in a fully automatic system, without the need for a crew.

The Dragon capsules, owned by SpaceX billionaire Elon Musk, have delivered five NASA crews to the International Space Station. There were also two completely private flights with millionaires on board.

One of the people present at the launch was geologist Harrison Schmidt, a crew member of Apollo 17, the last lunar mission of the Apollo program in December 1972. The 33-year-old Watkins, who is also a geologist and has a good chance of participating in the Apollo program, wished you and your Matchmaking, Journey to the Moon as part of the Artemis Program.

Watkins said before the launch that she believes her mission “is an important milestone for both NASA and the country.”
