    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - The SpaceX "Resilience" Crew Dragon manned mission to the International Space Station will take four astronauts into orbit on Sunday.

    The launch of the first-ever operational commercial crew mission is set for November 15, 19:27 Eastern time (00:27 GMT on Monday, November 16). It follows the SpaceX Demo-2 mission that took NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley to the ISS in May this year.

    The SpaceX Crew-1 mission will carry US astronauts Mike Hopkins, Victor Glover and Shannon Walker and Soichi Noguchi from Japan for a six-month stay on the ISS.
