In the next several minutes, NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley will take the elevator up to the 255-foot level of the fixed service structure, then take a short flight of stairs to the crew access level, where they will cross the crew access arm – the walkway from the fixed service structure over to the White Room and the waiting SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft.
