SpaceX’s Crew-1 capsule breaks US spacecraft record set in 1974


Astronauts on the International Space Station celebrated their SpaceX spacecraft reaching a milestone on Sunday (Feb. 7), by connecting with a former NASA astronaut who helped set the previous, long-standing record.

The four crew members who launched on the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft “Resilience” last November marked their capsule surpassing the 84 days, 1 hour and 15 minutes that was the prior U.S. record for a spacecraft in flight, as set by the Apollo command module that flew on the Skylab 4 orbital workshop mission in 1973 to 1974.
