MOSCOW, January 24. /TASS/. The start of the Crew-8 mission, which includes Russian cosmonaut Alexander Grebenkin, is scheduled for February 18, follows from the report of the head of the department of the Rocket and Space Corporation (RSC) Energia, Rafail Murtazin, as part of the XLVIII Academic Readings on Cosmonautics in Memory of S.P. Korolev ("Royal Readings").
“[Start of mission] Crew-8 - 18.2 (February 18 - TASS note),” says Murtazin’s presentation slide. The crew will go into orbit on the American ship Crew Dragon.

The launch date will give time for Intuitive Machines' first moon lander, with NASA and other payloads on board, to leave Earth via a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Pad 39A before Crew-8, he added. That private moon mission, known as IM-1, is targeted for no earlier than Feb. 14, per Spaceflight Now's launch calendar.

As its name suggests, Crew-8 is the eighth operational astronaut mission that SpaceX will fly to the ISS for NASA. The timing of the astronaut launch will very much depend on IM-1's status, Stich emphasized.

If IM-1 goes on time, Crew-8 would fly perhaps around Feb. 29 or March 1 from the Pad 39A, which SpaceX leases at KSC. But if IM-1 misses its narrow monthly window to reach the moon when lighting conditions are favorable for a landing, Crew-8 would stay groundbound until at least March 22 (assuming IM-1 departs in March).

Crew Dragon has a nominal max duration of 210 days, so i think Crew-7 must return by 24 March. NASA strongly prefers to have an actual overlap at ISS, and they need some contingency margin. I do not think they will defer Crew-8 until 22 march.

Something is weird here. I saw an announcement earlier today that said that, if IM-1 misses its slot, Crew-8 would launch around *February* 22nd.

If IM-1 goes on time, Crew-8 would fly perhaps around Feb. 29 or March 1 from the Pad 39A, which SpaceX leases at KSC. But if IM-1 misses its narrow monthly window to reach the moon when lighting conditions are favorable for a landing, Crew-8 would stay groundbound until at least March 22 (assuming IM-1 departs in March).

Something is weird here. I saw an announcement earlier today that said that, if IM-1 misses its slot, Crew-8 would launch around *February* 22nd.

The NASA person misspoke during the conference. He said March 22 when he meant February 22. It's clear from context of his comment.

The day off in orbit began with the correction of the ISS orbit - the station is preparing to meet with the international crew: Roscosmos cosmonaut Oleg Novitsky, space flight participant from the Republic of Belarus Marina Vasilevskaya and NASA astronaut Tracy Dyson.

Today at 14:39 Moscow time, the Progress MS-24 engines turned on, worked for 788.2 seconds and produced an impulse of 1.17 m/s. After the maneuver, the average altitude of the ISS orbit increased by 2 km and amounted to 418.64 km above the Earth’s surface.

The spacecraft will remain docked to the space station for about six months before its departs and burns up in the atmosphere. It will host one last science experiment, the Kentucky Re-entry Probe Experiment-2 (KREPE-2) on its way back, which “will take measurements to demonstrate a thermal protection system for spacecraft and their components during re-entry,” according to NASA.

so to be clear, when will it be the 22nd  and when will it be the 29th ??

when do we know which date it will be ?

Depends on whether IM-1 is delayed:

Thanks to
@cbs_spacenews
 for his question on today's Crew-8 presser we now have some more clarity!

Answer is basically: If IM-1 launches on time then Crew-8 would launch around the 29th or 1st but if it slips, then Crew-8 could be launched earlier around the 22nd
