These images of the commercial crew astronauts training have likely already been posted but, in case they haven't, here is a link to the images:

Any ideas why the lack of SpaceX images of crew dragon and astronauts. All images we got are some weird angle barely showing anything. Are there even any images of final crew dragon interior? And what about space suit images? All we got are 2-3 highly photoshopped ones not showing much details.

I've explained this several times in multiple threads: the lack of clear images of Crew Dragon and its interior is per orders from top-level management at SpaceX. They will reveal the final look of Crew Dragon and its interior when they think the time is right.

I'm not sure if you read NASA's publication "between the lines".

Read the latest blog post of NASA about today's spacewalk.

Do you see something interesting?

Do you mean?
" The first uncrewed test missions are planned to begin at the end of the year."
As distinct from August the published date.

" The first uncrewed test missions are planned to begin at the end of the year."

So much for that being an official position.

Quote from: Eric Berger
I'm told this was a "typo" by NASA's web guy. Agency's official position is still "later this year."

NASA edited the problematic post. Still sticking to the dates announced earlier:

"Houston We Have a Podcast", the official podcast of the NASA Johnson Space Center, interviews Kathy Lueders, Manager of the Commercial Crew Program based at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida: https://www.nasa.gov/johnson/HWHAP/launch-america

Not much news except DM-1 goes to Plum Brook in 1.5 weeks, but worth listening to just for the unique perspective it provides.

That seems to be recorded on May 30, so DM-1 should be on itís way

She said the demo missions will not be licensed by FAA, but the post-certification missions will be licensed by FAA.

She also mentioned that one potential benefit of doing an extended crewed demo mission with Boeing would be giving them more time to check out and refurbish their uncrewed demo mission vehicle since they're planning to re-use it for their PCM-1 flight.
