SpaceX’s Crew-1 astronauts break 47-year US space record

Four astronauts live on board International Space Station The ISS broke a record of 47 after spending the longest time in space with a crew launched from US soil.

The astronauts, collectively known as Crew-1 – Michael Hopkins, Shannon Walker, Victor Glover of NASA, and Soichi Noguchi of the Japan Space Agency (JAXA) – were the first full-fledged mission crew to be brought into orbit by a private company. (A smaller test mission for the International Space Station, made up of only two astronauts who stayed in space for a short period, preceded Crew-1 by several months.) Crew-1 arrived aboard a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule launched in orbit by a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, from the Kennedy Space Center In Florida on Nov.15, the sister site to Live Science I mentioned Space.com earlier.
