NASA's SpaceX Crew-1 mission will mark what historic "first" in the Commercial Crew Program?
NASA's SpaceX Crew-1 flight is about to make history by becoming the first crew rotation mission to deliver four astronauts to the ISS by a commercial spacecraft, and the first Commercial Crew Program flight to liftoff with an international partner. The crew for this mission includes NASA astronauts Shannon Walker, Victor Glover, Mike Hopkins and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) astronaut Soichi Noguchi. The launch is currently scheduled for Nov. 14. The crew are set to remain in space for a long duration stay on station, returning in spring 2021. Once on station, the Crew-1 astronauts will join their Expedition 64 crew members on station to conduct all kinds of science investigations, like growing radishes in space and cancer research. This historic launch comes just after a milestone anniversary on station, as the ISS recently celebrated 20 years of continuous human presence onboard the orbital laboratory.
