NASA's rocket successfully launches to the International Space Station

NASA's SpaceX Falcon 9 Crew-8 launched Sunday to the International Space Station.

The four astronauts launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the agency's eighth commercial crewed mission to the space station.

Congratulations to NASA and SpaceX for another successful launch to the International Space Station.

On this mission, we are once again showing the strength of our commercial partnerships and the American ingenuity that will propel us further into space, said NASA Administrator Bill Nelson.

The crew will perform more than 200 science experiments and technology demonstrations to help "fuel this new era of space exploration."
