NASA’s SpaceX Crew-8 crew trains for their upcoming mission to the International Space Station. Their training took place across the world, most notably at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, and at SpaceX Headquarters in Hawthorne, California. The crew consists of NASA astronauts Matthew Dominick, commander; Michael Barratt, pilot; Jeanette Epps, mission specialist; and Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexander Grebenkin of Russia, mission specialist. Once aboard the International Space Station, they will become expedition 70/71 flight engineers, spending several months conducting science experiments and maintaining the orbital outpost.

Crew-8 is slated to launch to the International Space Station aboard SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft, powered by the company’s Falcon 9 rocket from Launch Complex 39A no earlier than 12:04 a.m. EST on Friday, March 1, 2024.
