Per an email sent by NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine to employees on Wednesday (July 10), Ken Bowersox is the new acting associate administrator for the Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate, replacing the long-serving Bill Gerstenmaier. Bowersox, who previously served as Deputy Associate Administrator for HEO, is a retired U.S. Naval Aviator with more than two decades of experience at NASA. He is an accomplished astronaut and a veteran of five space shuttle missions and served as commander on the International Space Station.
nikolay.tikhonovFriends and colleagues! Mark and Aki. With Mark, we were preparing in the backup crew of the ISS 51, and today he will evaluate our test dive with Aki!
Not sure this is the place for this but here goes....
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.https://mobile.twitter.com/ulalaunch/status/1154091159008010242
50 years after his historic flight, #Apollo 11 astronaut @astromichaelcollins meets with our newest astronaut candidates from the class of 2017. They will be part of the team returning to the moon on future #Artemis missions. Passing on wisdom from one generation of explorers to the next
