May 27th for the American astronautics and SpaceX will be another important date. The first manned flight of the Crew Dragon spacecraft to the International Space Station is scheduled for this day. Now the delivery of people to the ISS is carried out by Russian Unions. Crew Dragon Ilona Mask is called to end this monopoly. The launch vehicle with the ship has already been installed on the launch pad.
