3 astronauts make two-day launch to International Space Station

In February this year, Elon Musk successfully launched his new rocket, the Falcon Heavy, from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

"We're in a position now where there are people out there that can do commercial management of the International Space Station", Bridenstine told The Post. Furthermore, 80 percent of Americans think the space station has been a good investment for the country.

This issue is very relevant due to the emergence of private companies, including Elon Musk's SpaceX, that are venturing out in space. A third (33 percent) do think that these private companies could advance the industry even without the agency. Pew Research Center asked survey participants to rate the importance of the following nine missions.

Sending astronauts to Mars: 18% top priority, 45% important but lower priority, 37% not too important or should not be done.

When given the choice of humans or robots in future NASA space expeditions, 58 percent of American adults believe that human astronauts are essential, while 41 percent say that humans are not essential to these types of missions.

On Wednesday, Bridenstine also promised to always have an astronaut in space.

The 7% of the public that is highly attentive to news about NASA and private space companies tends to express more confidence in these companies to handle key aspects of space exploration.

NPR's Alexi Horowitz-Ghazi and Emily Sullivan reported in March that private companies Boeing and Space X have been involved in helping with space expeditions for the past two decades.

The astronaut-carrying version of the Dragon includes seven seats, a bank of monitors offering the crew real-time flight data, a climate-control system for added comfort, and plenty of windows so the space travelers can gaze in awe at the stunning scenery.
