SpaceX Crew-2 (USCV-2) will be the second crewed operational flight of a Crew Dragon spacecraft to the International Space Station, and the third overall crewed orbital flight. The Crew-2 mission will transport four members of the crew to the International Space Station.

SpaceX booster B1061 will attempt to land on autonomous spaceport drone ship (ASDS) after its second flight.

At 6:11 a.m. EDT (10:11 UTC), the SpaceX Crew Dragon Endeavour spacecraft and Falcon 9 rocket will lift off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Shane Kimbrough and Megan McArthur of NASA, Thomas Pesquet of the European Space Agency, and Akihiko Hoshide of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency will join the station’s crew, for a mission of approximately six months.

This will be the first launch through the Commercial Crew Program to fly two international partner astronauts, and the first reuse of a Crew Dragon spacecraft and Falcon 9 rocket for a crew mission.

Once aboard the station, the Crew-2 astronauts will spend a lot of time on science — in areas such as medical technology, human health, and materials to benefit life on Earth. The space station is a unique scientific platform, enabling researchers from all over the world to put their talents to work on innovative experiments. It has instruments that monitor our home planet’s global climate, environmental changes, and natural hazards.
