MICHAEL HOPKINS: The launch itself was absolutely incredible. That vehicle really gets off the ground. And so it was exciting all the way up. And the ride was very smooth.

SOICHI NOGUCHI: This feels like you are actually inside the Dragon, bringing us up to space. So that was quite a feeling.

SHANNON WALKER: You can tell that it's a lot fuller here. Instead of three people on this side, five people. But everybody's right. We're going to get a lot of work done, which is really good for all the science that goes on in the world.

VICTOR GLOVER: I hope that this inspires people to literally and figuratively look up. I really think having something to look up to now, especially as we bring 2020 to a close, it's just something that we all need.
