SpaceX wants Crew Dragon flights to the space station with NASA to be business as usual. Crew-1 will lead the way, but only after a weather delay.

This is not a test anymore. SpaceX is looking to make International Space Station astronaut transfers a normal part of NASA operations with the Crew-1 mission — its first crew rotation flight — this Sunday, Nov. 15. The launch got pushed back from Saturday due to onshore winds and potential problems with recovery operations.

SpaceX’s groundbreaking Demo-2 mission delivered two NASA astronauts safely to the ISS in May. It was both harrowing and exciting as actual humans tested out Crew Dragon for the first time. Crew-1 will follow in the footsteps of that successful mission with a launch on a Falcon 9 rocket from Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
