The Crew Dragon spacecraft Resilience was expected to launch on 31 October 2020 on a Falcon 9 from the Kennedy Space Center, LC-39A. The launch was postponed due to bad weather and was eventually launched on 15 November.
It carried NASA astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover and Shannon Walker along with JAXA astronaut Soichi Noguchi, all members of the Expedition 64 crew. The mission is the second overall crewed orbital flight of the Crew Dragon, pending the certification of the vehicle.
