SpaceX on Saturday launched it's first crewed mission into space with the flight of NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken.




The astronauts' Crew Dragon spaceship, which they named Endeavour once in orbit, spent the night catching up to the $150 billion International Space Station (ISS).




The crew is performing a docking procedure that will fly them from about 400 meters below the ISS, up to 220 meters in front of it, and then in for a docking at roughly 10:39 a.m. ET.




You can watch and listen in on the historic mission, called Demo-2, by watching NASA and SpaceX's joint broadcast on YouTube.
