Crew-1 is Ready to “Launch America” Again
We are targeting Saturday, Oct. 31, 2020, to launch NASA astronauts Mike Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker and JAXA astronaut Soichi Noguchi on our SpaceX Crew-1 mission bound for the International Space Station. This is the first crew rotation mission with four astronauts flying on a commercial spacecraft and the first including an international partner, and will expand the station’s long-duration crew to seven people for the first time.

The Crew Dragon spacecraft, named "Resilience," will lift off from Launch Complex 39A at our Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The crew is scheduled for a six-month stay aboard the orbiting laboratory, returning in spring 2021.
Oct. 31, 2020: Astronauts to Launch on NASA and SpaceX Crew-1 Mission
The Crew-1 mission is a major step for our Commercial Crew Program. Operational, long-duration commercial crew rotation missions will enable NASA to continue the important research and technology investigations taking place aboard the station. Such research benefits people on Earth and lays the groundwork for future exploration of the Moon and Mars.

People Spotlight
Meet Magdiel Santana, Senior Program Analyst at NASA Headquarters.

“Since I was 13, I’ve had maybe two or three jobs. Right now, I feel like I have four jobs. I have the NASA job, the Navy job. I’m also the chair for the Hispanic Outreach and Leadership Alliance, and I’m a new dad. It’s a lot.

You’re going to have periods in your life where you may have a lot of work assignments and you’re spending a lot of time on the career side of things, but you need to also remember that you owe some time to your family and your friends. Are you taking time off for your health? Recognize when you’re a little bit off-balance on one end. Success is in the journey of trying to work your way back to balanced.”

We’re headed back to the Moon as part of the Artemis program – and the “worm” logo will be along for the ride. Teams at our Kennedy Space Center have applied the historic logo in bright red on visible parts of the Artemis I rocket and spacecraft.
