Why ?

As Rogozin said, U.S. spacecrafts should prove their safety at first.

When USCV-1/2 fly both DM-1/2 and Boe-OFT/CFT will have flown. Won’t they have proved their safety by then?
Not to the degree that Soyuz has. It's a political thing.

I doubt that they'll "move the goalposts" since my belief is that there's a slim chance of the "moving" happening.

My opinion is that the safety approval should be finalized after both test flights of Starliner and the DM-2 mission have been flown.

Remember that DM-1 was a success before the Crew Dragon anomaly.

According to NASA, decisions about crew positions and responsibilities on both Crew Dragon and CST-100 Starliner are "TBD". I find this difficult to believe, only 4-5 months out from flight.

One interesting caveat, via Rob Navias: NONE of the crew members currently assigned to CCP missions will rotate into ISS-CDR roles, so no command for Fincke, Williams etc. Presumably this means they'll all remain Flight Engineers throughout their expeditions. Not sure if this also includes Ferguson. NASA is very tight-lipped even on who is in overall command on Boe-CFT.

Maybe we should create a new thread like "Information about former astronauts/cosmonauts/space flight participants" ?

JAXA astronaut Soichi Noguchi, as he was released from his backup crew assignment for Soyuz 59S with its successful launch, is now slated to begin training to board a United States Crew Vehicle (USCV) while he continues to train for an ISS expedition crew.
The specific vehicle provider and its flight schedule will be announced when more details are available.
Please note that the plan is tentative and may change due to various factors including the USCV development schedule.

It seems like Eric Boe is still in training for a Starliner flight, even after being removed from Boe-CFT.

Not necessarily. Boe is astronaut office branch chief for commercial crew, so he could easily be present for that reason.

The next mission of Thomas PESQUET is planned from December 2020 to June 2021. The dates are not yet definitively confirmed.
So we can accept, that he will be the third person on USCV-2, whatever this will be.


There are Suni Williams, Josh Cassada and Thom Pesquet on USCV-2 so far.
