Watch NASA’s SpaceX Crew-3 Mission Launch (Trailer)

On Nov. 10 at 9:03 p.m. EST (02:03 UTC Nov. 11), 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 International 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.
