A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket with the company's Crew Dragon spacecraft onboard is seen on the launch pad at Launch Complex 39A during a brief static fire test ahead of NASA’s SpaceX Demo-2 mission, Friday, May 22, 2020, at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. NASA’s SpaceX Demo-2 mission is the first launch with astronauts of the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft and Falcon 9 rocket to the International Space Station as part of the agency’s Commercial Crew Program. The test flight serves as an end-to-end demonstration of SpaceX’s crew transportation system. Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley are scheduled to launch at 4:33 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, May 27, from Launch Complex 39A at the Kennedy Space Center. A new era of human spaceflight is set to begin as American astronauts once again launch on an American rocket from American soil to low-Earth orbit for the first time since the conclusion of the Space Shuttle Program in 2011.

The American flag flies at half-staff next to the countdown clock at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Press Site, Friday, May 22, 2020, in Florida. President Donald Trump directed on Thursday that flags be lowered to half-staff until sunset on May 24th “as a mark of solemn respect for the victims of the coronavirus pandemic.” NASA’s SpaceX Demo-2 mission is the first launch with astronauts of the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft and Falcon 9 rocket to the International Space Station as part of the agency’s Commercial Crew Program.

I think I've heard (from Kathy Lueders during the Flight Readiness Review Briefing) that the Launch day dress rehearsal ops are scheduled to start at about 8:00 EDT (12:00 UTC) today...

F9/Demo 2: Hurley and Behnken, riding in Tesla SUVs and escorted by security personnel, drove past the Launch Control Center a few moments ago on their way to pad 39A; they should be in the process of strapping in as today's practice countdown continues
