Watch SpaceX launch the Crew-6 mission into space

Posted on

The Crew-6 mission is getting ready to fly into space. Using SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket, the company’s Dragon Endeavor spacecraft will lift off Monday morning at 1:45 a.m. ET from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The spacecraft will carry four astronauts, including NASA’s Stephen Bowen and Warren “Woody” Hoburg, as well as United Arab Emirates Sultan Alneyadi and Russian cosmonaut Andrey Fedyaev. They are headed to the International Space Station for a stay of up to six months, where they will conduct several research projects to “prepare for human exploration beyond low Earth orbit and benefit life on Earth.”

At the ISS, they join the seven-member Expedition 69 crew and the history-making Crew-5 astronauts, who will depart shortly after Crew-6’s arrival. This is the seventh time SpaceX has flown astronauts aboard its Dragon spacecraft as part of the NASA Commercial Crew Program and the company’s ninth crewed flight overall.
