The launch window for SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon capsule from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida begins at 4:33 p.m. on May 27.

It is the first crewed flight for NASA since its space shuttle program ended in 2011.

If Wednesday’s launch is canceled for any reason, the backup dates are May 30 and May 31.

If the test succeeds, SpaceX will be certified by NASA for additional crewed missions to the ISS.
