SpaceX Crew Dragon may fly astronauts to ISS in early 2020

SpaceX's Crew Dragon spacecraft is almost ready to take astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS). Since the Space Shuttle retired in 2011, the US had to rely on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft to get astronauts into space but that's changing soon as both Boeing and SpaceX are getting closer to manned spaceflight.

Elon Musk's space firm will likely be the first to send astronauts into space. Space.com writes this flight may launch in early 2020.
"We are getting very close, and we're very confident that, in the first part of next year, we will be ready to launch American astronauts on American rockets," [NASA chief Jim] Bridenstine said.

The first quarter of 2020 — that is, January through March — is a realistic target for SpaceX's Demo-2 mission, he added. That test flight that will carry NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken to and from the International Space Station (ISS). Operational, contracted ISS missions would then follow.
