The launch was originally targeted on April 22 but was later scrubbed due to bad offshore weather at the recovery zone. This mission marked the first time a reused Falcon 9 booster and Crew Dragon capsule was used on a crewed mission. Crew-2 was also the first mission to carry astronauts from three different countries in 20 years.  Onboard this mission is NASA Astronaut Shane Kimbrough, Megan McArthur (Which is the wife of Demo-2 astronaut Bob Behnken), JAXA Astronaut Aki Hoshide, and ESA Astronaut Thomas Pesquet.
