NASA’s Space X Crew-6 crew members are now boarding the Dragon spacecraft, Endeavour. As the crewmates board, their seats are configured in the upright position; later, prior to closure of the spacecraft’s side hatch, the seats will be rotated into a reclined position for flight.
The four Crew-6 crewmates – Commander Stephen Bowen, Pilot Warren Hoburg, Mission Specialist UAE (United Arab Emirates) astronaut Sultan Alneyadi, and Mission Specialist Roscosmos cosmonaut Andrey Fedyaev – are set to launch from Kennedy Space Center’s Launch Complex 39A in Florida at 12:34 a.m. EST, Thursday, March 2. They will dock the Dragon spacecraft, named Endeavour, to the forward port on the International Space Station Harmony module about 24.5 hours after liftoff.
