Later this month, if conditions allow, astronauts Robert Behnken (a St. Louis native!) and Doug Hurley will be the first astronauts to launch from America since the space shuttle retired in 2011.  Both astronauts will launch aboard the Dragon Space X’s Falcon 9 rocket from the Kennedy Space Center, headed to the International Space Station.
