I read on spacefacts today that Caldwell was rumored to have been removed from Soyuz MS24, it says their gonna have a space flight participant on the next two Soyuz flights. So idk whatís going on if someone could confirm this as fact not fiction or if itís false or if it just got announced let me know. Theirs rumors of a Belarusian space tourist thatíll fly with ovchinin and land with kononenko & OíHara, & a Turkish space flight participant would fly on Soyuz MS25, and would land with ovchinin & Chubb, so I wonder if Hansen & borisov will swap spots Hansen to crew 7 borisov to crew 8 or if itíll be borisov & furukawa that fly on crew 7 & Hansen & Caldwell on crew 8. Or if Caldwell will fly on crew 7 or Boeing starliner mission one or if furukawa flyís on the first Boeing starliner mission. Nasa hasnít come out and released any statement yet but if these two space flight participants fly theyíll have Caldwell fly  on either the space x crew dragon or the Boeing starliner, idk about Caldwell all these changes itís weird. Only Americans lined ik for the Soyuz are Rubio & OíHara. Whenever someone comes out with a statement please let me know.

I was under the impression that the Turkish flight was Axiom-2, not a Soyuz mission.

My schedule for MS-25 contains the flag of Tunesia. It's not the Turkish flag.

The flag on MS-24 is from Belarus.

Neither is it the place for speculation not anchored in some kind of fact or logical deduction from fact.

Iím on Wikipedia & spacefacts & that the Soyuz, crew dragon collaboration missions after crew 7 ends for awhile after OíHara lands on a Soyuz crew swap with a Belarusian astronaut, and the next one that lands has a Tunisian astronaut & on crew 7 on Wikipedia when you look up list of crew dragon flights they have an American flag as one of the mission specialists on crew 7, so I wonder if Caldwell got bumped to crew 7 nasa hasnít come out and publicly said anything yet itís kinda been hush hush which itís like just announce something, but I just wondered Jeremy Hansen Will he more than likely be on crew 8, I can tell you I was on a space website and they said that the Boeing starliner test flight got bumped to February and no later than early to mid February. Idk how true that is but if someone could confirm that if theyíve heard that let me know the only confirmed crew member for starliner 1 is Jeanette Epps, Satoshi furukawa has yet to be confirmed for starliner 1 by JAXA, & the commander and pilot have yet to be confirmed by nasa, & the fourth astronaut the supposed American for crew 7 has yet to be confirmed by nasa on the space x crew 7, the only confirmed crew members are moghbeli, morgensen, & borisov, iím not trying to speculate anything or start rumors but if anyone thatís works for nasa thatís on here can say something Iíd appreciate It.

About Starliner, yes its being pushed back to NET February as mentionned on the NASA/Boeing media teleconference yesterday. As for Wikipedia, you have to remember that its been updated by regular people. I often see mistakes and update stuff on there. As of now there is no news on that mission specialist for Crew-7... could be an american but I doubt it would be Caldwell-Dyson as she's started training for Soyuz.

We don't know either.
On Thursday, Boeing said that in addition to flying their CFT (Crewed Flight Test) in February 2023, they are targeting having a Starliner ready for the Fall 2023 crew rotation mission opportunity.  (Boeing's Mark Nappi called it PCM-1 for Post Certification Mission 1, but we also see it go by Starliner-1 and Boeing-1.)
But some statements from ESA and from Andreas Mogensen suggest SpaceX Crew-7 will get the slot.
However TASS & Roscosmos suggest a Crew-7 mission in 2024.
NASA hasn't said anything on the subject, though we might learn more during the pre-flight briefing next month for Crew-5.

This makes it sound like the Tunisian flight will be a full-length one and not a spaceflight participant: https://www.republicworld.com/science/space/roscosmos-to-launch-tunisias-first-woman-to-international-space-station-in-2024-articleshow.html. Does anyone know anything more about this?

so does that mean someone else will get bumped to crew 7 as pilot that being someone like a Matthew dominick or a Jonny Kim. Only confirmed member of starliner crew 1 is Jeanette Epps Satoshi furukawa is still to be confirmed.

Oops!  Non-sequitur follows.  (I totally misread John's question.)

Quoting Wikipedia's SpaceX Crew-6 ß Crew:
Quote
MBRSC participation in this mission is a byproduct of a 2021 agreement between NASA and Axiom to fly a NASA astronaut, Mark T. Vande Hei, onboard Soyuz MS-18 (launch) and Soyuz MS-19 (return) in order to ensure a continuing American presence onboard the ISS. In return, Axiom received the rights to a NASA owned seat onboard SpaceX Crew-6. Axiom provided the flight opportunity to MBRSC professional crew member through an agreement with the United Arab Emirates Space Agency. Later the astronaut was confirmed to be Sultan Al Neyadi.

That looks correct to me.

I don't recall if NASA was prohibited from buying seats from the Russians at that point, if they just wanted to avoid doing so for political / optics concerns, or if this was thought to be a cheaper way.  But for whatever reason, it was decided that this barter arrangement was the best course.

I'd love to hear more about NASA's thoughts on integrating Al Neyadi in as a full USOS member of Expeditions 68/69, which is what I assume is happening.

(However it was obtained, that Vande Hei seat turned out to be even more valuable to NASA when his stay was converted into a year-long (355 day) mission.  Though I thought it funny at the time how that aspect of Vande Hei's mission wasn't emphasized much, compared to all the hoopla give the year-long (340 day) mission.  I suppose it was overshadowed by Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the public concern over Vande Hei return on 30 March 2022.  But still, the man does hold the record for the longest US single spaceflight.)

A short-stay mission for Al Neyadi would be hard to pull off if Starliner flies it's first Post Certification Mission in Fall 2023 (as Boeing says they are targeting).  It would be easier to do so if that Fall mission is SpX Crew-7 (as the same suit would be used up and down), with one member of Crew-6 having their stay extend to a year.  I've no reason to think that is being considered as a possibility, but I don't know that NASA would be publicly discussing it if it were.

is Mike fincke the commander or pilot of Boeing starliner crew 1 Iíve only read stuff nasa and Boeing have yet to confirm it,  unless Matthew dominick is gonna be the first rookie to command a Boeing mission. Or if Eric boe is medically able to fly Again idk I just looked on Wikipedia and Satoshi furukawa has supposedly been confirmed for space x crew 7 heíll probably command the second half of expedition 70 if he has been confirmed can someone from JAXA confirm it.

As someone who has played the what-if crew game for years, I'm in a poor position to criticize, but really... if you're going to speculate and cite Wikipedia and use terms like "I've only heard" (from whom?), at least try using capital letters and punctuation so we can actually read what you've written.

That looks correct to me.

I'm confused here. I was talking about the Tunisian who's supposed to fly on Soyuz, not the UAE flight on Crew-6. As far as I know, that has always been planned to be a 6-month flight, but I thought the Tunisian flight was going to be as a spaceflight participant. Sorry if I'm missing something.
