A New Crew Launches to the Interantional Space Station | This Week @NASA

A New Crew Launches to the International Space Station This Week @NASA 

October 7, 2022: Launching a new crew to the International Space Station, the plan moving forward for Artemis I, and Webb’s new look at a pair of galaxies . . . a few of the stories to tell you about—This Week at NASA!

The hatch of SpaceX’s Crew-5 “Endurance” Crew Dragon spacecraft, with NASA astronauts Nicole Aunapu Mann and Josh Cassada, JAXA astronaut Koichi Wakata (Japan) and Roscosmos cosmonaut Anna Kikina (Russia), was opened on October 6, 2022, at 6:49 p.m. EDT/22:49 UTC. Crew-5 is SpaceX’s fifth operational mission for NASA’s Commercial Crew Program. 

Mann, Cassada, Wakata, and Kikina have joined the Expedition 68 crew of NASA astronauts Bob Hines, Kjell Lindgren, Frank Rubio, and Jessica Watkins, Samantha Cristoforetti of the European Space Agency (ESA), and Roscosmos cosmonauts Sergey Prokopyev and Dmitri Petelin. For a short time, the number of crew on the space station will increase to 11 people until Crew-4 departs.

An international partnership of space agencies provides and operates the elements of the  International Space Station (ISS). The principals are the space agencies of the United States, Russia, Europe, Japan, and Canada. The ISS has been the most politically complex space exploration program ever undertaken.
