From Morning Report, 6:48 am on 21 May 2020

The head of NASA's human spaceflight programme has stepped down.

Doug Loverro resigned on Monday less than a year after his appointment. His resignation is just a week before two astronauts travel to the International Space Station aboard SpaceX rocket.

It's the first mission taking off from US soil since 2011.
