Crew-5 will carry NASA astronauts Nicole Mann and Josh Cassada, along with JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) astronaut Koichi Wakata, and Roscosmos cosmonaut Anna Kikina to the ISS.

Crew-5 will conduct new and exciting scientific research in areas including investigations to prepare for human exploration beyond low-Earth orbit and benefit life on Earth. Experiments will include studies on 3D biological printing of cells and tissues in space, understanding liquid behavior in lunar and Martian gravity, and multiple experiments aimed at better understanding heart disease. These are just some of the more than 200 science experiments and technology demonstrations that will take place during their mission.

Mission Commander, Nicole Mann is the first indigenous woman for NASA to travel to space and the first female commander for a commercial crew launch.
