A design from Bangladesh has been selected as the logo for the Asian Tri-Zero G 2022, which aims to try out the space experiments that young people in the Asia-Pacific region have thought up on Kibo. I am looking forward to conducting experiments on the ISS "Kibo."

One note from the ongoing Crew-5 briefing: launch of the mission is scheduled for no earlier than Sept. 29, but will likely slip a few days to provide some spacing with a Soyuz mission to the ISS launching Sept. 21.

SpaceX's Benji Reed notes the composite interstage for this Falcon 9 was damaged en route from California to Texas. It has been replaced and exhaustively tested. Also notes minor damage to one main parachute canopy during Crew-3 return. No impact on performance, but analyzing.

Sergei Krikalev, during Q&A, explicitly said that "after 2024" could mean 2025, 2028, or 2030, that the decision would be based on technical reasons.  He expressed a concern that information had been lost in translation.

I thought it was a helpful and artful answer. :)

Do we know anything more specific about a landing date than the comment at the briefing that Crew-5 will be a five-to-six-month flight?

The first orbital booster to be involved in a fender-bender.
Another first for America's space program... ;)
I want to read this police accident report so badly.

Not the first one. It happened to SpaceX at least once before (years ago).

GT:  At the NASA Johnson Space Center VR Lab, the final test of the operation to fly back to the ISS by operating the nitrogen gas jet emergency system (SAFER) in the event that the lifeline with the ISS structure is disconnected during an extravehicular activity. was. Training for the launch is progressing steadily.

NASA’s SpaceX Crew-5 Mission Nears Completion of Crew Training

James Cawley Posted on August 11, 2022

By Jim Cawley
NASA’s Kennedy Space Center

The crew members who will fly aboard NASA’s SpaceX Crew-5 mission are in the home stretch of a unique 18-month training program to prepare them for their mission to the International Space Station for a science expedition mission.

NASA astronauts Nicole Mann, commander; Josh Cassada, pilot; and mission specialists Koichi Wakata, of JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency), and Roscosmos cosmonaut Anna Kikina will lift off aboard SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft – on the company’s Falcon 9 rocket – from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Liftoff is targeted for no earlier than Sept. 29. This marks the fifth crew rotation mission of the company’s human space transportation system, and its sixth flight with astronauts, to the space station for the agency’s Commercial Crew Program.

The crew has undergone mission-specific training at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, while also traveling to SpaceX in Hawthorne, California, for spacecraft training, and to international partner agencies for system and payload training.

“We really focus on what they’re going to need to perform the space station mission,” said Cassie Rodriquez, Crew-5 chief training officer at Johnson. “So that’s specific to the systems they’ll be working with and tasks they will be performing.”

In addition to space station systems, the crew has studied and participated in extravehicular activities; Russian language; robotics; T-38 jet flying; spacesuit training; spacecraft training; and physical, tool, and science training. The astronauts also are given opportunities to exercise crew resource management, where they are exposed to contingency situations, learning how to respond and take specific roles in case of an emergency.

“We put them through scenarios to help develop that teamwork and expeditionary skills; how to live and work with other people in very high-stress and dangerous situations,” Rodriquez said. “They have shown leadership, toughness, and focus in everything that they do. The dedication to human spaceflight, to making the mission a success – it’s very inspiring.”

Crew-5 will fly to the space station in Dragon Endurance, which previously flew the agency’s Crew-3 mission to and from the orbiting laboratory. Follow the commercial crew blog for the latest information on Crew-5 progress and flight readiness as reviews and milestones continue. NASA and its partners will host a media event in the coming weeks to discuss more about Crew-5 progress.
