Astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley Are Ready for Their Historic Mission. This is the first crewed launch to the Space Station on a commercially built rocket and the first launch of American Astronauts from US soil since 2011. (Image Credit- SpaceX)
After arrival at the ISS on Wednesday afternoon, Astronauts Behnken and Hurley will join the current crew, NASA's Chris Cassidy and Russians Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Vagner, and they will remain on board for between one and four months. We are sure they will be kept busy with experiments and maintenance, but we have learned that one part of their mission will be to bring Celestial Buddies' Little Earth back to Mother Earth when they return. All of us who followed the adventures of Little Earth, who arrived at the ISS on the unmanned Crew Dragon Demo-1 in March of 2019, will look forward to welcoming the little guy back home.
