Have you heard about the 'Demo-2' Space mission?

On Saturday night, SpaceX and NASA launched two astronauts into Space in the 'Falcon 9' rocket. The rocket contained the 'Crew Dragon' spacecraft, including a capsule carrying astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley. 

Their first planned flight to the International Space Station on Wednesday was postponed because of bad weather at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, USA.
