US presidential candidate who has already announced his victory, Joe Biden, has congratulated NASA and SpaceX on launching a manned spacecraft to the International Space Station.


The democrat wished the ship’s crew a successful mission.

Congratulations to NASA and SpaceX on today’s launch. It’s a testament to the power of science and what we can accomplish by harnessing our innovation, ingenuity, and determination. I join all Americans and the people of Japan in wishing the astronauts Godspeed on their journey, Biden tweeted.

The current American leader Donald Trump has also congratulated NASA, noting the merits of his administration in the agency’s development.

A great launch! NASA was a closed up disaster when we took over. Now it is again the ‘hottest,’ most advanced, space center in the world, by far! Trump tweeted.

NEWS.ru earlier reported that SpaceX postponed its 13th launch cluster of Starlink communications satellites on Sept. 17, citing a ‘recovery issue.’
