On Oct. 31, 2021, NASA’s SpaceX Crew-3 mission is set to launch to the International Space Station. Broadcast Launch coverage begins at 10 p.m. EDT Oct. 30.
The Crew-3 flight will carry NASA astronauts Raja Chari, mission commander; Tom Marshburn, pilot; and Kayla Barron, mission specialist; as well as ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut Matthias Maurer, who will serve as a mission specialist, to the space station for a six-month science mission. Once there, they will perform space station upgrades, conduct science experiments to benefit life on Earth, and continue preparing humanity for future missions to the Moon – and eventually Mars. This is the third crew rotation mission with four astronauts flying on a commercial spacecraft.
