NASA relegates four astronauts to SpaceX mission planned for 2021

NASA to Provide Coverage of Astronauts' Return from Space Station on SpaceX Commercial Crew Test Flight

Frenchman Thomas Pesquet was announced on Tuesday (28 July) as one of a four-person crew for next year's launch to the space station. Also, that will make ready for a Crew Dragon case to be propelled on its first completely operational strategic, the space station, Crew-1, which is scheduled for late September. In a series of four photographs, the veteran astronaut captured the first moments of a sunrise from the International Space Station.

Crew Dragon will soon be departing in the ISS shortly, and NASA will be able to reevaluate it and utilize the hardware every time it requires. Now, after its return, the spacecraft will be part of more crew missions to the ISS. Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley arrived at the ISS last month aboard the Crew Dragon capsule developed by SpaceX. Behnken and Hurley are relied upon to get back from the ISS when this end of the week, and their protected return could allow the Crew Dragon vehicle official certification as a human-worthy rocket. A minimum of three crew members have to be constantly present on the ISS to ensure it is working.

NASA and its worldwide partners named four astronauts to team a SpaceX mission to the global Space Station in spring 2021 - augmenting staffing on board the orbiting laboratory.
