Out Of This World: SpaceX Sends First Black Man Into History


SpaceX has successfully launched another crew into space for NASA. The mission includes four astronauts on a six-month journey to the International Space Station.  Victor Glover is one of those astronauts on board, making him the first Black crew member on the International Space Station for extended stay duty.  The navy commander and test pilot joined the corps in 2013.  The crew lifted-off from Cape Canaveral in Florida on Sunday night and are scheduled to reach the ISS late Monday night. During their 180 days up there, the crew will perform experiments and research. This was the second crewed flight for Elon Musk’s company. A mission in May this year took two astronauts to the ISS.
