We are less than three weeks away from the first launch of American astronauts on an American rocket from American soil since 2011.

NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley will fly to the International Space Station on SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft, lifting off on May 27 from our Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Take a moment to think about how you are preparing to launch. You could be building homemade rockets, watching launch videos or simply taking selfies in your spacesuits. We want to see how you are counting down to #LaunchAmerica!
