Space X used their official Twitter account and said, "Falcon 9 launches Crew Dragon on its first operational flight with astronauts on board, beginning regular crew flights to the @space_station from the United States."
It further reported that the journey would have been more precise had the Crew Dragon been able to launch on Saturday, as NASA first planned because the ISS would have formed on a pattern that allows the spacecraft to reach ISS in about eight hours. However, the plan was unsuccessful due to Hurricane Eta.
