NASA’s SpaceX Crew-5 astronauts ready for historic mission

SpaceX’s next Crew Dragon astronaut launch for NASA will see a new country represented in one of the sleek white spacesuits.

Russia’s Anna Kikina will take a seat on SpaceX with two American astronauts and a Japanese astronaut on the mission. The foursome will fly to the International Space Station (ISS) earlier than Oct. 3, 2022 at 12:45 pm EDT (1645 GMT) on SpaceX’s Dragon Endurance spacecraft. The SpaceX craft will be lifted to the ISS atop the company’s Falcon 9 rocket after launching from Launch Complex 39A at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
