SpaceX Crew-1 full astronaut mission launching on October 23
Often called Crew-1, the mission will see three U.S. astronauts and one Japanese astronaut launch in a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule to the Worldwide Area Station. There they are going to spend six months on the house station, conducting analysis and performing duties.
The Crew Dragon capsule will carry NASA’s Mike Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker and JAXA’s Soichi Noguchi. The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket that can elevate the capsule arrived in Florida in July, to organize for the Crew-1 launch.
Demo-2 critiques ongoing
SpaceX’s Crew Dragon Endeavour spacecraft splashes down within the Gulf of Mexico with NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley onboard on August 2, 2020.
The announcement comes about two weeks after the profitable completion of the SpaceX Demo-2 check flight, which carried a pair of NASA astronauts within the firm’s first ever crewed mission. The 2 organizations are at the moment reviewing knowledge from the Demo-2 mission. Assuming no main points are discovered, NASA will then certify SpaceX’s rocket and capsule system to regulrly fly astronauts to the ISS.
