April 23, 2021: Astronauts to Launch on NASA and SpaceX Crew-2 Mission


On April 23, 2021, NASA astronauts Shane Kimbrough and Megan McArthur, ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet, and JAXA astronaut Akihiko Hoshide will launch on NASA’s SpaceX Crew-2 mission headed for the International Space Station. 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 second crew rotation mission with four astronauts flying on a commercial spacecraft, and the first with two international partners. It’s time to #LaunchAmerica!
