Onlookers cheered and clapped as NASA and SpaceX successfully launched a crew of four astronauts from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, to the International Space Station on November 10.

The mission, called Crew-3, is carrying three NASA astronauts — Raja Chari, Tom Marshburn, and Kayla Barron — and one German astronaut, Matthias Maurer of the European Space Agency.

The mission’s astronauts will replace a crew that landed in the Gulf of Mexico on Monday
