What is Falcon 9's mission?

The Falcon 9 flight is a manned reconnaissance space flight.

SpaceX Crew-5 is the fifth flight of a crewed Crew Dragon spacecraft to the International Space Station under NASA's Commercial Crew Program.

The Falcon 9 begins its mission to low Earth orbit . This is located at an altitude of 200 to 2,000 kilometers. LEO rides are the lowest energy and easiest to get to. Spacecraft need about 100 minutes to orbit the earth and can move at about 7 km/s. The radio contact to a ground station is a maximum of 15 minutes per round trip. Low Earth orbit is primarily used for manned spaceflight, but also for spy satellites, astronomical satellites, as well as Earth exploration and weather satellites, amateur radio satellites, global communications systems, and research and technology testing satellites.

These space programs are involved:

Commercial Crew Program

The Commercial Crew Program (CCP) is a manned space program operated by NASA in cooperation with the American space companies Boeing and SpaceX. The program operates rotations between International Space Station program expeditions, transporting crews to and from the International Space Station (ISS) aboard Boeing Starliner and SpaceX Crew Dragon capsules, in the first manned orbital spaceflights operated by private companies.

Commercial Crew Program has existed since April 18, 2011.

These are the space organizations involved (Commercial Crew Program):

  • Boeing: Commercial

International Space Station

The International Space Station program is linked by a complex set of legal, political and financial arrangements between the sixteen nations involved in the project, which govern ownership of the various components, crew rights and use, and responsibilities for crew rotation and regulate the supply of the International Space Station. The project was created in 1984 by President Ronald Reagan as part of the Space Station Freedom project, as it was originally called.

International Space Station has existed since November 20, 1998.

These are the participating space organizations (International Space Station):

  • Canadian Space Agency: Government
