How to sneak in a trip to Mar-A-Lago:
President Trump will travel to Florida for the historic SpaceX launch next week, the White House said Friday.
SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon spacecraft are being prepared for a historic Demo-2 mission on Wednesday, which will launch NASA astronauts into space from U.S. soil for the first time since 2011.
It will be the first time a private company, rather than the national government, sends astronauts into orbit. It will also be only the fifth time in U.S. history that NASA astronauts will fly a new spacecraft for the first time.
Despite NASA urging people to watch the historic launch from home, Titusville Police have a traffic plan in place to get people in and out of the area on launch day. https://t.co/M08QnlJnFt

The first astronaut launch in 9 years takes place Wednesday. Under normal circumstances, huge crowds would descend along the beaches and roads of Florida’s Space Coast, but local officials, @NASA and @SpaceX are split on whether that’s a good idea now.https://t.co/zFSD23iz6Q
