Missouri Astronaut Makes History Aboard First Human SpaceX Flight

St. Louis County native Bob Behnken and fellow astronaut Doug Hurley launched into space Saturday from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Cape Canaveral weather looked a bit iffy for launch but then began to clear up as liftoff time approached. The mission marks the first time in U.S. history that a commercial astronaut crew has gone to space and the first human space flight from U.S. soil in nearly a decade. The flight took about nine minutes to get to space and about 19 hours to parallel park at the International Space Station.
