Is it known yet what the nationality of the fourth member of Crew-7 will be--U.S. or a third international astronaut? It seems like they need an LDF veteran in there somewhere.

Unofficial sources say that Satoshi Furukawa will be the fourth Crew-7 member, which means that all four members could be each from one nation.

Interesting! Thank you! I had presumed that Furukawa would take the second mission specialist seat on Starliner-1. I wonder if that means Jeremy Hansen will fly next year, or maybe an ESA astronaut will get that seat.

With Hansen pointed towards a 2024 flight, do we definitely know that he is not in the running for Artemis-2?

So now that we know Butch Wilmore and Suni Williams will be Commander and Pilot respectively for BOE-CFT. Are we alright to assume that Mike Fincke will be commander on Starliner-1. There is also the case of Matthew Dominick who seems to also be training on the Starliner.

I'm hoping once CFT flies successfully NASA will publish the crews (NASA Astronauts) for hopefully 1-3 of the Starliner flights since that's what they've been doing with SpaceX. But I guess it will all depend on when the Starliners fly since NASA won't want to announce too far ahead.
I kinda hope Eric Boe commands a Starliner mission, & that Don Pettit flies as a mission specialist on either a Space x or Boeing mission, I also read that Tracy Caldwell Dyson is supposed to fly on the Soyuz but some sites like spacefacts say she痴 been replaced by Konstantin Borisov so I知 wondering if she値l be a mission specialist on Boeing Starliner crew 2, or if she値l fly on space X Crew 8 & serve as commander of expedition 71 or 72.

I would guess Mike Fincke as commander of Starliner-1 with Matthew Dominick commanding Starliner-2. And Jeanette Epps stays on Starliner-1 as Mission Specialist 1 or 2.

Maybe if Eric Boe is cleared of his medical issues, he could fly as pilot on either Starliner-1 or Starliner-2.
No, Eric Boe would serve as commander.

I'd like to see Boe fly again, too, but I'd be surprised if Pettit flew again at 67. Spacefacts still has Tracy Caldwell Dyson on MS-24, and Borisov was announced to fly on Crew-7.

Don petit at 67 or 68 flying in space would be epic.

A visual overview to the flight crew assignments.
Much of the launch dates are tentative.  Comments and corrections are welcome.  :)

If I had to guess, Loral O'Hara's backup for Soyuz-MS 23 will be Tracy Caldwell-Dyson.

Since Stephanie Wilson is eligible for flight assignments, I have a hunch she'll go on Crew Dragon. Can't say if she'll ultimately be on Starliner, but that's also a possibility.

I have a feeling Stephanie Wilson we値l be selected to be on Artemis one.

Thanks for doing this! I noted three things: The Russians are showing Tracy Caldwell-Dyson training with the MS-24 crew, I think Jean Epps was going to be a Starliner mission specialist (not pilot), and Konstantin Borisov will fly on Dragon (Crew-7/USCV-8).

I have a feeling Stephanie Wilson we値l be selected to be on Artemis one.

Artemis II (the first manned flight)? I agree.

The thread is for current and future assignments, not alternate histories discussions of past possible assignments.

Interesting to contemplate Wiseman, who will be coming up on 2 years as chief in Dec 2022 and will likely rotate out of that role in the next few months or perhaps 2023.

With the "Artemis Cadre" having been identified in 2020, there was some talk about whether or not Artemis mission crews would be drawn only from that cadre. Looking at Commercial Crew assignments, which have now expanded greatly beyond their original cadres (and with some astros having moving from Dragon to Starliner or vice versa), I wonder if the Artemis Cadre is not the golden ticket to the Moon that it first appeared?

I still think Wiseman would be logical choice to command Artemis-2 or Artemis-3, regardless of whether or not he was in the cadre.
