Reach for the stars and beyond

SpaceX and NASA partnered up to make history on May 30 with the successful launch of NASA's astronauts into space for the first time since the space shuttle era was concluded in 2011. It is also the first (and definitely not the last) spacecraft built by a privately owned company, SpaceX.

After 19 hours of transit, astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley were able to enter the International Space Station ten minutes ahead of schedule on the morning after launch. NASA had something to say on Twitter, including a video and a heart-warming and goosebump-inducing phrase of "We have liftoff."

People are once again looking towards the future

NASA astronauts like Drew Morgan, who recently returned from the ISS on April 17, tweeted about his thoughts and feelings regarding the launch. Morgan wished Behnken and Hurley "God speed." and "Thinking especially of your families proudly waiting for your safe return," Christopher Ferguson, who conducted the final space shuttle mission, welcomed his new space colleagues in a very formal manner. "Proud to yield the title of "The last commander of an American launched spacecraft to @Astro_Doug, with @AstroBehnken, has returned US to space from KSC after 3,252 days. Well done @Commercial_Crew and @SpaceX!"

Even fictional captains from another universe had greeted the astronaut's success and shared their heartfelt tweets. William Shatner and George Takei, Star Trek's Captain Kirk, and Mr. Sulu were quick to tweet out: "Congratulations @SpaceX for an historic achievement! Humanity needs hope, and you have provided a much needed burst of it.

Even Science celebrities were there to tweet out and congratulate the successful launch mission and looking forward to more of the achievements humanity has yet to achieve. Neil deGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye were as happy as any other human on the planet with their tweets.For the political side of things, even U.S. politicians on both sides of the aisle tweeted out their congratulations. Vice President Mike Pence, and Rep. Adam Schiff, and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden didn't miss a chance to greet the success of the United States and humanity as a whole.
