There is also a Crew-6 seat available, I would think Canada is interested in this mission since the other missions were not originally scheduled, but if Jeremy Hansen is ultimately assigned to Crew-7 it is because that Crew-6 seat was already assigned.
I publish information in Spanish about space and rockets.

Complete speculation but it may have been assigned to Furukawa, he is set to fly in 2023 so its probably either Crew-6 or Starliner-1.

Roscosmos has the right to one RS crew member per USOS crew rotation.

Per the Schedule of ISS Events he was recently assigned to Starliner-1:

2023
September - CST-100 Starliner-1 (Crew-1/USCV-7) launch and docking (to Harmony PMA 2 / IDA 2) [astronaut NASA, astronaut NASA, cosmonaut, Furukawa]

In order for Artemis barter flights the planned astronauts by that agency must complete ISS long term flights to complete one of the prerequisites.

Right. But won't Crew-6 be two NASA, one international USOS, and one RSA? I thought Conexion Espacial was referring to the international USOS seat.

Fascinating! I did not know that, so thanks for mentioning it! I'm a little confused, though, as aren't the rumors saying that the Canadian seat on Artemis II will go to Kutryk or Sidey-Gibbons (both rookies)?

That was the reason given for earlier crew changes. The other types of qualifying expedition experience as stated a long time ago include, underwater habitats, caving, time in the expedition facility at Institute of Biomedical Problems, and much more. An expedition flight to the ISS is the preferred route.

Sorry--which crew changes? I feel like I'm missing something here. Re the various types of qualifying experience, I did not realize that. Thanks!

Meet the new Dragon tamer! @Astro_Andreas is returning to the @Space_Station & he'll do it as the first non-US astronaut to pilot a
@SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft. An exciting step for Europe.

With a pilot seat on the @SpaceX's Dragon spacecraft, mission training is already in full swing for second-time flyer @astro_andreas. Andreas will continue his @ESA_Caves geology lessons for the #Moon in #Norway this summer.

RELEASE 22-029

NASA, ESA Assign Astronauts to Space Station Mission on Crew Dragon

NASA and ESA (European Space Agency) have selected two astronauts to launch on NASA’s SpaceX Crew-7 mission to the International Space Station.

NASA astronaut Jasmin Moghbeli and ESA astronaut Andreas Mogensen will serve as spacecraft commander and pilot, respectively, for the mission. Two mission specialists will be announced later, following review by NASA and its international partners.

The mission is expected to launch no earlier than 2023 on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Moghbeli, Mogensen, and the additional mission specialists will join an expedition crew aboard the space station.

This will be the first spaceflight for Moghbeli, who became a NASA astronaut in 2017. Moghbeli is from Baldwin, New York, and earned a bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and a master’s degree in aerospace engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. As an AH-1W Super Cobra pilot and Marine Corps test pilot, she has flown more than 150 missions accruing 2,000 hours of flight time in more than 25 different aircraft. She also graduated with honors from the U.S. Naval Test Pilot School in Patuxent River, Maryland. At the time of her selection as an astronaut, Moghbeli was testing H-1 helicopters and serving as the quality assurance and avionics officer for VMX-1. She is also the proud mom of twin girls.

This will be Mogensen’s second trip to the space station as a veteran of the ESA 10-day Iriss mission in 2015, for which he served as a flight engineer. Mogensen was the flight engineer on Soyuz TMA-18M spacecraft during launch and Soyuz TMA-16M during the return flight. Mogensen has logged 9 days, 20 hours, and 9 minutes in space. He was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, and graduated with an international baccalaureate from the Copenhagen International School, a master’s degree in aeronautical engineering from Imperial College London, and a doctorate in aerospace engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. In 2015, Mogensen became the first Danish person to go to space and currently is serving as the European astronaut liaison officer to NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston.

NASA’s Commercial Crew Program works with the U.S. aerospace industry to provide safe, reliable, and cost-effective transportation to and from the International Space Station on American-made rockets and spacecraft launching from American soil.

For more than 21 years, humans have lived and worked continuously aboard the International Space Station, advancing scientific knowledge and demonstrating new technologies, making research breakthroughs not possible on Earth. As a global endeavor, 253 people from 19 countries have visited the unique microgravity laboratory that has hosted more than 3,000 research and educational investigations from researchers in 109 countries and areas.

The station is a critical testbed for NASA to understand and overcome the challenges of long-duration spaceflight and to expand commercial opportunities in low-Earth orbit. As commercial companies focus on providing human space transportation services and developing a robust low-Earth orbit economy, NASA is free to focus on building spacecraft and rockets for deep space missions to the Moon and Mars.

Follow Moghbeli on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Tillykke to my friend and colleague @Astro_Andreas, who has been selected for his second mission to the #ISS and will become the first non-US astronaut to pilot a Crew Dragon spacecraft..

One of the things I love most about training for our mission aboard the @iss is that every day is different. Last week, @astro_andreas and I had spacewalk training in the Neutral Buoyancy Lab. Later in the week, I was practicing free flyer operations to capture a @northropgrumman Cygnus cargo vehicle in our Cupola mock-up. Can’t wait to see what this next week brings! #Crew7

"NASA astronaut Jasmin Moghbeli, is my guest. Moghbeli, originally from Baldwin, is scheduled to command an International Space Station flight next year. " 

To be clear, Jasmine is to be Commander of the Dragon as it flies to/from ISS, not Commander of the ISS.  At least not yet :-)

Lots of great EVA (Extra-Vehicular Activity, or spacewalk) training over the past week!

1st 📷: SAFER (Simplified Aid For EVA Rescue, or jet pack) training in the VR Lab
2nd 📷: Wishing @astro_feustel a successful training run after suiting him up…great practice for the role of Suit IV
3rd 📷: @astro_andreas & I practicing our EVA skills in the NBL (Neutral Buoyancy Lab)

Also, lots of acronyms!
