Tonight I witnessed Rocket Launched from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center of SpaceX Crew Dragon 1 mission flying astronauts; Commander Michael Hopkins, Pilot Victor Glover, and Mission Specialist Shannon Walker, all of NASA, along with Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) Mission Specialist Soichi Noguchi. team-up for science and exploration. This USA/Japan peaceful “together” theme is significant for us around the World Team project personally as Japan is where the vision for the World Team project began. Collectively from those of us from the USA bearing the historic karma and wanting to stand for peace. This summer we can expect to see more teamwork, and not only with the Summer Olympics in Japan.
This historic private astronaut’s journey launches human space exploration at a moment when humanity can use more inspiration and unity with one another, past all that divides. To see the rocket blast off in the night sky, lit up our hearts with the possibility of the future.
They have reached orbit en route to the International Space Station for a six-month science mission.
The Crew Dragon is scheduled to dock at the space station around 11 p.m. Monday, Nov. 16. Launch, prelaunch activities, and docking will air live on NASA Television and the agency’s website.

We LOVE the Engines’ names; #Kestrel #Merlin and consider the legacy in a name. Elon Musk is good at the archetypical use of energetics in more than merely the name but it has raised awareness even with what he has done with “Tesla”.
The huge contrast in missions between Friday, Nov. 13th, 2020 Atlas V Rocket NROL-1010 Spy Satellite contrasting approach between government confidential and multistakeholder partnership approach for public benefit, collaboration, or competition-hedging bets?
These “Launches” are opening up #Space for Humanity in this multistakeholder partnership with SpaceX, JAXA and NASA lead in this new frontier of “Resilience,” which is also the name of the rocket. This is not just about humanity with machines, private operational space navigation, but also the continuation of research towards interstellar habitation, and a better understanding of life, on earth, and other planets, through the gifts of scientific exploration.
We are also so excited about the #StarLinkSatellites’ for last-mile of least developed connectivity, transparency, and more transformational media possibilities Launch ON! https://www.nasa.gov/nasalive
