NASA's Space to Ground: On Top of It | Week of April 19, 2024

NASA's Space to Ground: On Top of It | Week of April 19, 2024

NASA's Space to Ground is your weekly update on what's happening aboard the International Space Station. Cosmonauts Oleg Kononenko and Nikolai Chub of Russia continue to prepare for an April 25, 2024, spacewalk that will see the Roscosmos duo work outside in the vacuum of space for about seven hours. Meanwhile, NASA astronauts Butch Wilmore and Suni Williams are to become the first to launch aboard Boeing’s Starliner spacecraft to the International Space Station. Liftoff is scheduled for no earlier than 10:34 p.m. EDT Monday, May 6, from Cape Canaveral’s Space Launch Complex-41. The astronauts will spend about a week at the orbiting laboratory before the crew capsule makes a parachute and airbag-assisted landing in the southwestern United States.

After successful completion of the mission, NASA will begin the final process of certifying Starliner and its systems for crewed rotation missions to the space station.
