SpaceX Rocket launched with NASA astronauts

New Delhi May 30 ( UNI ) Two Nasa astronauts have launched to orbit on a rocket and capsule system provided by the private company SpaceX.

According to BBC ,They're the first crew to make the journey from US soil since the shuttles were retired nine years ago.

Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken are not only trialling the new hardware, they are also initiating a new business model for Nasa.

The agency will no longer own the vehicles it uses but merely purchase the "taxi" service offered by SpaceX.

The astronauts' Dragon capsule left Earth atop its Falcon-9 rocket precisely on time - at 16:22 local Florida time (20:22 GMT / 21:22 BST).
