SpaceX's Crew Dragon launches to the ISS

Science
Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one, zero. Ignition, liftoff. [SOUND] [BLANK_AUDIO] Vehicle is pitching down range. [INAUDIBLE] [BLANK_AUDIO] [BLANK_AUDIO] Takes one throttle bucket. Power into in. Nominal. [APPLAUSE] For those of you just joining us, you are watching a live view of the Falcon 9 rocket as it ascends through the atmosphere carrying the Space X Dragon 2 capsule to orbit. Vehicle is- [APPLAUSE] The vehicle just passed through max cue, which is the point of maximum aerodynamic pressure on the vehicle. As you can hear in the background, the excitement at Spacex headquarters is unbelievable here. Coming up at T plus 2 minutes and 35 seconds is going to be [CROSSTALK] three events in quick succession. The first one is going to be the main engine cut off or Meco. That's when the nine Merlin One D engines that you can see on your screens right now, will cut off Shortly before a stage separation at two minutes and 38 seconds. Shortly after that, the Merlin vacuum engine on the bottom of the second stage of the Falcon 9 will ignite. And what we call second engine start, or SES, that'll be at two minutes and 46 seconds. So stand by for main engine cutoff, stage separation, and second engine start Coming up in just about 20 seconds from now. [BLANK_AUDIO] [BLANK_AUDIO] [APPLAUSE] [APPLAUSE] As you can hear from the cheering here at Spacex headquarters, we did have a successful main engine cut off, a state separation. And as you can see on the right hand side of your screen, that second stage engine is currently started and accelerating Dragon towards orbit. On the left hand side of your screen, that is a view from this first stage as it makes its way back down towards the earth. Stage One, FTS is safe. Stage One, entry burn has started. [APPLAUSE] [APPLAUSE] Look at that freeze. So it is three, in one engine reigniting. It's going to continue on for about another 15 or so seconds. [APPLAUSE] So a little back to back action now as we see stage one coming back down towards earth, stage two still making its way up into outer space. The dragon still nestled on top getting ready. Stage one, entry burn shutdown. And there's the end of that stage one shutdown. [APPLAUSE] [APPLAUSE] Okay, so stage one's gonna continue to coast way down using those [UNKNOWN] fins for attitude control and steering. [BLANK_AUDIO] And in just under a minute. [UNKNOWN] Yeah, that's right, it's coming up in about ten seconds. [NOISE] [FOREIGN] [NOISE] [NOISE] Stage one is transonic. And we've had a successful shutdown, [UNKNOWN]. [APPLAUSE] All right [LAUGH]! [APPLAUSE] Stage one landing's only supposed to start. At the start of that burn, stage one will be traveling at 275 meters per second. That single-engine burn is gonna bring that from 275 To zero. And we did just here that stage from Miami burn has started. All right. Let's see if we get it. [NOISE] Please calm down. [APPLAUSE] [INAUDIBLE] about 500 kilometers away from where it launched from, the vehicle will now undergo its safing procedures The recovery team will make sure it's strapped down and it will make its way back to earth. Or sorry back to Cape Canaveral. It's already on earth. So there's still a lot more to go here. We have Dragon separation coming up. Let's go back to To Tom Praderio to cover that next big milestone. Wow, what a landing. Coming up very shortly, in just about 20 seconds here, the Dragon spacecraft is gonna be separating from the top of the Falcon 9 rocket. [BLANK_AUDIO] Separation should be occuring around 11 minutes and 5 seconds, just about now. Let's wait for confirmation. Dragon separation confirmed. [BLANK_AUDIO] And there it is. [APPLAUSE] You're looking at a view from the top of the second stage of the Falcon 9 rocket. And hard to make out in the shadow of the earth, but that is the dragon two spacecraft flying in space for the first time after a successful separation. This is a great day for everyone here at Spacex and NASA.
