NASA on Wednesday announced SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft’s first uncrewed test flight is set for January 7, 2019. It would lift off on SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket from the same launch pad at Kennedy Space Center that sent Apollo 11’s three-man crew to the Moon in 1969. SpaceX plans to launch astronauts to the International Space Station by June 2019.
