Event Details


A SpaceX Falcon 9 Block 5 rocket will launch NASA astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover and Shannon Walker along with JAXA astronaut Soichi Noguchi on the first crewed operational flight of the Crew Dragon spacecraft Resilience.

Crew-1 will be the first operational mission to the International Space Station in the Commercial Crew Program. Originally designated “USCV-1” by NASA. The mission is expected to last 180 days, meaning the flight will return to Earth sometime around June 2021. Resilience is expected to return to Earth via splashdown for reuse for another future mission.
