#OTD in 2016, astronaut Kate Rubins worked on the Heart Cells experiment aboard the @Space_Station. While working on the study, she saw one of the few things that made her gasp out loud while in space: heart cells beating.Rubins is planned to launch back to station this October.

I will put a copy of this sad news here because Nikolai Tikhonov was originally suposed to be on this increment.

GT:Cosmonaut Nikolai Tikhonov left the body of cosmonauts on July 31, 2020 due to new data on his state of health. I am sad for him ..... I wish him all the best for his future endeavors!

GT:Cosmonaut Nikolai Tikhonov dropped out of the cosmonaut corps
| Cosmonauts
July 31, 2020

On July 31, 2020, the employment contract with test cosmonaut Nikolai Tikhonov was terminated.

Nikolai Tikhonov was enrolled in the cosmonaut corps in 2006. In June 2009, after completing a course of general space training, at a meeting of the Interdepartmental Qualification Commission (IQC), he was awarded the qualification "test cosmonaut". Later, he underwent training as part of the specialization and improvement group under the ISS program.

From June 2015 to October 2016, he trained as part of the ISS-49/50 backup crew as a flight engineer of the Soyuz MS-02 TPK and an ISS-49/50 flight engineer.

From December 2017 to April 2018, N. Tikhonov was trained as a member of the ISS-57/58 prime crew as a flight engineer of the Soyuz MS-10 TPK. The composition of the crew was changed due to the revision of the ISS flight program.

From June 2018 to February 2020, the cosmonaut was trained as part of the ISS-63 crew as the commander of the Soyuz MS-16 TPK and the ISS-63 flight engineer.

From February to July 2020, he was trained as part of the specialization and improvement group under the ISS program.

N. Tikhonov made the decision to leave the cosmonaut corps in connection with the new data on the state of health.

Currently, the Roscosmos cosmonaut corps includes 31 people, of which 23 are active cosmonauts and 8 are candidates for test cosmonauts.

GT: Today Nikolai Tikhonov, who was four times assigned to the main crews of Soyuz for flights to the ISS (but never flew) and received an eye injury before the Soyuz MS-16 flight, left the cosmonaut corps for health reasons

NASA, SpaceX Targeting October for Next Astronaut Launch

Anna Heiney Posted on August 14, 2020

NASA and SpaceX are targeting no earlier than Oct. 23 for the first operational flight with astronauts of the Crew Dragon spacecraft and Falcon 9 rocket to the International Space Station as a part of the agency’s Commercial Crew Program. NASA’s SpaceX Crew-1 mission will be the first of regular rotational missions to the space station following completion of NASA certification.

The mission will carry Crew Dragon commander Michael Hopkins, pilot Victor Glover, and mission specialist Shannon Walker, all of NASA, along with Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) mission specialist Soichi Noguchi for a six-month science mission aboard the orbiting laboratory following launch from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Crew-1 will launch in late October to accommodate spacecraft traffic for the upcoming Soyuz crew rotation and best meet the needs of the International Space Station. Launch will follow the arrival of NASA astronaut Kate Rubins and cosmonauts Sergey Ryzhikov and Sergey Kud-Sverchkov of the Russian space agency Roscosmos aboard their Soyuz MS-17 spacecraft and the departure of NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy and cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Vagner from the space station. The launch timeframe also allows for a crew handover with NASA’s SpaceX Crew-2 mission next spring.

The Crew-1 mission is pending completion of data reviews and certification following NASA’s SpaceX Demo-2 test flight, which successfully launched NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley to the International Space Station on May 30 and returned them safely home with a splashdown off the Florida coast in the Gulf of Mexico on Aug. 2.  Demo-2 was the first crewed flight test of a commercially-owned and operated human space system.

NASA certification of SpaceX’s crew transportation system allows the agency to regularly fly astronauts to the space station, ending sole reliance on Russia for space station access.

For almost 20 years, humans have continuously lived and worked aboard the International Space Station, advancing scientific knowledge and demonstrating new technologies that enable us to prepare for human exploration to the Moon and Mars.

NASA is enabling economic growth in low-Earth orbit to open access to space to more people, more science, and more companies than ever before.
