David Kerley Discovery
Discovery and Science channels are teaming up to give us a multiplatform experience looking behind the scenes at SpaceX’s first-ever crewed launch.
The mission, called Demo-2, was scheduled to lift off Wednesday (May 27) at 4:33 p.m. EDT (2033 GMT) from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Discovery and Science channels aired a live launch broadcast that day beginning at 2 p.m. Eastern (11 a.m. Pacific), which was hosted by Christian Davenport (journalist at The Washington Post), Chris Jacobs (television host for several past Discovery events) and ABC News correspondent David Kerley.
Demo-2 will send NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley to the International Space Station (ISS) aboard a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule. Its liftoff will be the first launch of astronauts to orbit from U.S. soil since the last space shuttle mission, STS-135, launched from Florida in July 2011. Since then, NASA astronauts have relied on Soyuz spacecraft launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to reach the ISS.
