The Science of NASA’s SpaceX Crew-6 Mission


After launching to the International Space Station on March 2, 2023, NASA’s SpaceX Crew-6 mission is wrapping up its time in orbit, with a return to Earth in early September 2023.

NASA astronauts Stephen Bowen and Woody Hoburg, UAE (United Arab Emirates) astronaut Sultan Alneyadi, and Roscosmos cosmonaut Andrey Fedyaev spent their months on the orbiting lab conducting scientific investigations and technology demonstrations, including running a student robotic challenge, studying plant genetic adaptations to space, and monitoring human health in microgravity to prepare for exploration beyond low Earth orbit and to benefit life on Earth.

The astronauts also released Saskatchewan’s first satellite, which tests a new radiation detection and protection system derived from melanin.
