New #satellite imagery from today (May 30,2020) of the historic launch of the #SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon Spacecraft from Launch Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Most notably, we collected a dramatic image of the rocket and the astronauts flying toward space and high above the launch pad and the clouds at T-plus 120 seconds! Congratulation to #NASA and SpaceX for the spectacular launch today. #LaunchAmerica
