NASA, SpaceX target Oct. 23 for Crew-3 astronaut launch

NASA and SpaceX have announced that the pair’s autumn mission to send four astronauts to the International Space Station will launch no earlier than Oct. 23.

The decision comes as the two organizations are preparing for the preceding astronaut launch, called Crew-2, which is currently scheduled for April 22 and which will carry crewmembers from three different space agencies to the orbiting laboratory: NASA astronauts Shane Kimbrough and Megan McArthur, European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Thomas Pesquet and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) astronaut Akihiko Hoshide.
