Preparations continued on May 22 for the first crewed US space flight since 2011.
SpaceX, the first of NASA’s commercial flight partners, tested the Falcon 9 rocket’s engines on that date with a static fire at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
The rocket is set to launch on May 27, carrying two US astronauts to the International Space Station.
