Default Nasa SpaceX launch: Astronauts complete rehearsal for historic mission

Nasa astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken have completed their dress
rehearsal for Wednesday's flight to the International Space Station.

The mission, the first crewed outing from American soil in nine years,
will see the pair ride to orbit in a SpaceX Falcon rocket and Crew
Dragon capsule.

It's a demonstration of the new "taxi" service the US space agency will
be buying from the Californian firm.

Lift-off on Wednesday is timed for 16:33 EDT (20:33 GMT / 21:33 BST).
