SpaceX has never taken people to space before. Its Crew Dragon is a gumdrop-shaped capsule — an upgraded version of SpaceX’s original Dragon capsule, which has been used many times to carry cargo, but not people, to the space station.

Crew Dragon has space for up to seven people but will have only four seats for NASA missions. If this launch succeeds, it will ferry four astronauts to the space station later in the year.

The capsule that carried Mr. Behnken and Mr. Hurley had been nameless until it got to orbit. Saturday night, the astronauts announced the name they had given it: Endeavour, a moniker it shares with both a space shuttle and a British naval research vessel commanded by James Cook.
