NASA announces astronauts for SpaceX CREW-2 manned mission to the ISS

NASA to Provide Coverage of Astronauts' Return from Space Station on SpaceX Commercial Crew Test Flight

NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley are set to come back to Earth, leaving the Global Space Station on August 1 and splashing down in the Atlantic on August 2. This is a regular mission, meaning the crew will be staffing the International Space Station for an extended period - six months for this stretch, sharing the orbital research platform with three astronauts who will be using a Russian Soyuz spacecraft to make the trip.

The SpaceX spacesuits intended for Crew Dragon astronauts glance a large amount unique from the typical NASA fits that have been in support for a long time. It was the spaceship's first crewed flight - the first time humans had ever flown in a commercial spacecraft.

NASA has already announced the new batch of astronauts that will be travelling to the International Space Station as part of SpaceX's Crew Dragon 2. They'll don them again later this week for the return trip.

Shane Kimbrough has flown to the ISS twice - once aboard the space shuttle Endeavour and once aboard a Soyuz rocket.

NASA said: "McArthur operated the shuttle's robotic arm over the course of the 12 days and 21 hours she spent in space, capturing the telescope and moving crew members during the five spacewalks needed to fix and upgrade it".

She earned her wings aboard STS-125, the final space shuttle mission to the Hubble Space Telescope. The agency revealed the four people that will fly aboard that launch, including two NASA astronauts, as well as one from the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and one from the European Space Agency (ESA). Kimbrough had joined NASA in 2000 and has completed 189 total days in space. He has spent 140 days 17 hours 26 minutes in space. "It will be extra interesting for me to compare with my first flight as a Soyuz pilot, and to bring this experience to the team".
