NASA TV will begin live streaming the launch of the Crew Dragon Endurance spacecraft with the “Crew-6” mission at 9 p.m. on February 26 (or 9 a.m. on February 27, Vietnam time).
As of February 23, NASA flight engineers include: Nicole Mann and Josh Cassada revised their procedures for planning a return to Earth in Crew Dragon Endurance Ship from SpaceX.
These two engineers joined the Flight Engineer Koichi Wakata of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and Anna Kikina of Roscosmos as they review the steps they will take during the flight back to Earth.
Four astronauts for SpaceX’s Crew-6 mission
Four astronauts from SpaceX’s Crew-6 mission are ready to travel to the ISS to resume work as the group is about to return to Earth.
These four crew members prepare to return to Earth as they perform space physics and housekeeping tasks.
They were trained on the computer to detach the Crew Dragon Endurance from the Harmony module, reenter Earth’s atmosphere and parachute into the safe waters off the coast of Florida.
Astronaut Mann will command Crew Dragon Endurance, and Cassada will control this vehicle while Wakata and Kikina will still sit alongside on both sides. These four astronauts were brought to the ISS as part of SpaceX’s Crew-5 mission on October 5, 2022.
Replacement astronauts will arrive on the “Crew-6” mission after its launch on February 27 from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, United States.
NASA astronauts Stephen Bowen and Warren “Woodó” Hoburg will be the commander and pilot of the Crew Dragon Endeavor. They will be escorted by astronaut Sultan Alneyadi from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and astronaut Andrey Fedyaev from Roscosmos.
These four astronauts will approach the Harmony module on February 28 and will live and work there for six months to conduct important space research.
Currently, two crews, one from Roscosmos and the other from SpaceX, are also preparing to launch to the International Space Station (ISS).
The unmanned crew of Roscosmos’ Soyuz MЅ-23 is set to blast off to the International Space Station (ISS) at 7:24 p.m. on February 23 (or 7:24 a.m. on February 24) from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan for a voyage two days to the ISS to rescue three astronauts who are stuck there.
In addition to providing food for the crew, the Soyuz MS-23 spacecraft will return NASA astronaut Frank Rubio and two Russian astronauts Sergei Prokopyev and Dmitri Petelin to Earth.
These astronauts continued their science and maintenance tasks in the laboratory while preparing the tour vehicle.
Rubio, with support from Wakata, installed an extremely high temperature oven inside the Kibo laboratory module. Specialized ovens make it possible to safely observe the thermophysical properties of very hot samples.
Meanwhile, astronaut Prokopyev from Russian company Roscosmos tested the performance of the 3D printer. Petelin performed two different experiments, including fluid physics research and astrobiology research. He carried out activities for an Earth observation study and a carbon dioxide monitoring session.
