Human Spaceflight @esaspaceflightIt's like walking on the #Moon, so they say. 🌚Astronauts @Astro_Andreas and @NASA's Kate Rubins are exploring a fjord in #Norway 🇳🇴 for the grand @ESA_CAVES#geology finale. ⛏️👨🚀👩🚀More on this @ESA training #ForwardToTheMoon:https://blogs.esa.int/caves/2022/07/18/geology-finale-for-astronauts-on-a-moon-like-fjord%ef%bf%bc/
Cosmonaut Borisov will fly to the ISS on the Crew Dragon spacecraft in the spring of 2024
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.
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 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.
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mission, I also read that Tracy Caldwell Dyson is supposed to fly on the Soyuz but some sites like spacefacts say she痴 been replaced by Konstantin Borisov so I知 wondering if she値l be a mission specialist on Boeing Starliner crew 2, or if she値l fly on space X Crew 8 & serve as commander of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.

Spacefacts still has Tracy Caldwell Dyson on MS-24, and Borisov was announced to fly on Crew-7.
Don't think assignments have been set yet but ... TRACY!!!https://twitter.com/katlinegrey/status/1542092751432450048
With Hansen pointed towards a 2024 flight, do we definitely know that he is not in the running for Artemis-2?
A visual overview to the flight crew assignments.Much of the launch dates are tentative. Comments and corrections are welcome.
I have a feeling Stephanie Wilson we値l be selected to be on Artemis one.
