I have been assigned as the CSA backup astronaut for the #Artemis II mission. I can’t wait to contribute to this historic mission, and to train alongside @Astro_Jeremy and the crew.

Just announced! @Astro_Kutryk will be the next Canadian to fly to the @Space_Station as a crewmember of the Starliner-1 mission, Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner crew ship’s first operational mission. Launch is targeted for no earlier than the beginning of 2025. https://www.asc-csa.gc.ca/eng/missions/starliner-1/mission.asp

He will become the first CSA astronaut to be part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program. During his mission, Joshua will conduct science experiments and technology demonstrations. He will also support critical operations and maintenance activities.

Breaking news! @Astro_Jenni has been assigned as a CSA backup astronaut for #Artemis II. This secures a seat for Canada on the first crewed mission to the Moon in over 50 years, in the event that @Astro_Jeremy Hansen is unable to fly. https://www.asc-csa.gc.ca/eng/news/articles/2023/2023-11-22-astronaut-jenni-gibbons-designated-canadian-backup-artemis-ii.asp

Jenni Gibbons will help define and validate the astronauts’ training and processes for future Moon missions.

Is it safe to assume (not speculating, folks) that this means that there is very likely to be an Indian on Crew-9, since we know that the international seat on that flight will not go to Kutryk or to Yui or to Onishi or to anyone from ESA?

I believe so. With the Zena Cardman Crew-9 signature and Russian already "assigned" all that's left is presumably the commander. Here's to hoping we get an announcement this week.

This appears to confirm that the Indian astronaut will fly on Axiom. I infer that it will be AX-4, not AX-5. https://www.space.com/indian-astronauts-nasa-week-long-trip-iss. Now I'm really curious who will get the third seat on Crew-9! Time will tell.

Hansen's gotta be 'chomping at the bit' for Artemis-2 to launch.  It's been, what, since April when he got the Arty 2 nod, and him being one of the last "Chumps" of 2009 to get a flight assignment.  Jeanette Epps is the other "Chump" that's been flightless. Epps has received training on every crewed ISS system-post STS   

Hansen was selected during the CSA selection of 2009 where St Jacques was the other CSA Astronaut Candidate. 2018-2019 St Jacques EVA'd breaking the Canadian spacewalking drought of 12 years which began back when David Williams walked in August 11, 2007 during 2006 STS-118, after Steve McLean walked during STS-115(Sept 2006), and the first Canadian to space walk was Hadfield who EVA'd during STS-100 in 2001.

With Gibbons given the Artemis-2 CSA backup slot, Hansen had better stay healthy.

Edit: proper EVA dates.

Cool! Finally! The crew assignments have been rather sparse recently. Were there any spoilers (a la Epps on Crew-8)? I'm thinking especially of crew make-up, given the whole international astronaut switch-up.

There are a few rumours swirling around (including a very surprising possible candidate for CDR), but let's wait and see...

Interesting. I've heard at least three or four rumors myself for CDR and PLT (presuming Cardman) but absolutely nothing on MS-1 (replacing Kanai). Looking forward to finding out!
