Falcon 9 lifts off with Crew Dragon

(11 Nov 2021) Rocket: Falcon 9; Payload Crew Dragon/Crew-3 mission; Date: 11. November 2021, 0203 UTC; Launch site: Kennedy Space Center, USA. The mission was running more than 10 days late after bad weather and an unspecified minor medical issue with one of the astronauts forced delays.

During Crew Dragon's flight, SpaceX will monitor a series of automatic spacecraft manoeuvres from its mission control centre in Hawthorne, California, and NASA teams will monitor space station operations throughout the flight from the Mission Control Center at the agency's Johnson Space Center in Houston.

The Crew Dragon Endurance will dock autonomously to the forward port of the station's Harmony module around 0010 UTC on 12 November.
