NASA's Crew-5 mission to the International Space Station launched SpaceX's taxi service from the Space Coast once more on Wednesday.
The four-person crew from NASA, Japan, and Russia boarded the Crew Dragon Endurance spacecraft, which was atop a Falcon 9 rocket.
"It was a smooth journey," stated NASA astronaut and Crew-5 captain Nicole Mann.
SpaceX recovered its first-stage rocket on a recovery ship. While the spacecraft was in orbit, just read the instructions in the Atlantic.
Mann is joined by Roscosmos cosmonaut Anna Kikina and colleague NASA astronaut and pilot Josh Cassada.
All three are taking to the skies for the first time, along with Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) astronaut Koichi Wakata.
"We're having Einstein's happiest ideas," Cassada explained, revealing that Einstein had a thought that a person in freefall would not feel their own weight.
