This is also where the team will stay for the next 6 months. The Dragon ship landed at 11:01 pm ET on November 16 after 27 hours of automatic flight from Nasa’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

As they prepared for the space station linkup, the Dragon crew beamed down live window views of New Zealand and a brilliant blue, cloud-streaked Pacific 250 miles below.

This is the first time Elon Musk’s company has sent a delegation to join a half-year trip at the space station.

The three Americans and one Japanese astronaut will remain at the orbiting lab until their replacements arrive on another Dragon capsule in April.

And so it will go, with SpaceX — and eventually Boeing — transporting astronauts to and from the station for Nasa in a kind of galactic taxi service.

Among the crew members, Victor Glover was the first African-American to arrive at the space station to stay for an extended period of time.

 Four astronauts named this space as Resilience, meaning Resilience, to give the world hope and inspiration during a difficult year.

At the launch last week, NASA reduced the number of visitors to a minimum, with Elon Musk tasked with SpaceX chairman Gwynne Shotwell while participating in remote charge, after posting on Twitter that he ” most likely “infected.
