NASA astronaut shares stunning view of sunrise from space

NASA to Provide Coverage of Astronauts' Return from Space Station on SpaceX Commercial Crew Test Flight NASA announces astronauts for SpaceX CREW-2 manned mission to the ISS

The astronauts are NASA's Shane Kimbrough and Megan McArthur, Japan's Akihiko Hoshide and the European Space Agency's Thomas Pesquet.

Pesquet spent six months at the ISS between November 2016 and June 2017 as part of Expedition 50/51, during which the crew made six spacewalks and launched 36 nanosatellites. In a series of four photographs, the veteran astronaut captured the first moments of a sunrise from the International Space Station. If all goes well, this will be the third time that SpaceX will be launching astronauts into space after the Demo-2 mission that launched on 30 May 2020, and the Crew-1 mission which is due to launch in September this year. It was the spaceship's first crewed flight - the first time humans had ever flown in a commercial spacecraft. They'll don them again later this week for the return trip.

NASA and SpaceX are targeting 7:34 p.m. EDT Saturday, Aug. 1, for undocking of the Dragon "Endeavour" spacecraft from the space station and 2:42 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 2, for splashdown, which will be the first return of a commercially built and operated American spacecraft carrying astronauts from the space station.

Assuming the mission ends smoothly, the first of the Crew Dragon ferry missions - Behnken and Hurley's mission is considered a demo - will carry four astronauts to the ISS: Victor Glover, Mike Hopkins, Soichi Noguchi, and Shannon Walker. In a statement today, NASA disclosed the team of Crew-2, the next flight of the high tech capsule of SpaceX. A minimum of three crew members have to be constantly present on the ISS to ensure it is working.

Mr. Bob Bejnken, who flew SpaceX's Dragon Crew spacecraft last month, is now aboard the International Space Station.

She earned her wings aboard STS-125, the final space shuttle mission to the Hubble Space Telescope. A main goal of NASA's partnership with SpaceX is to give other countries' space agencies a viable alternative to Soyuz rockets as well. He has spent 140 days 17 hours 26 minutes in space.

In the new video, SpaceX lets us peer into why they decided on the DIY route - in addition to how their unique and futuristic spacesuits were created to match the look and functions of the Dragon spacecraft.
