The agency's crew flight schedules just before Halloween, when there were weather concerns and then a "minor medical issue" with one of the four astronauts on Crew 3, delayed the launch from October 31 to October The second (November). Since then, the space agency and SpaceX, which provide the Cru Dragon spacecraft and the Falcon 9 launch system, have been evaluating a number of issues to determine the best way to launch and return the Crew-3 mission. Four crew 2 astronauts from the International Space Station. p>
One of the most important factors is the duration of the Crew-2 mission, which launched on April 23, 2021. The Endeavor spacecraft is now in space. for 199 days, which is roughly the vehicle's approved mission length of 210 days. p>
This weekend, the agency decided to land the Crew-2 before launching the Crew-3. NASA did this after evaluating weather conditions at the Endeavor site in the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. In addition to the weather conditions of the launch site for Crew 3 and the conditions along the "passage" of the ascent across the North Atlantic, where a recovery mission must be carried out during the emergency launch. p> Announcement < p >> On Monday morning, NASA released its final plan for the sequence of events. Endeavor, carrying NASA astronauts Shane Kimbero and Megan MacArthur, JAXA astronaut Aki Hoshied and European astronaut Thomas Bisquet, will leave the International Space Station on Monday at 14:05 UTC (19:05 UTC). After the dock opens, Endeavor flies around the space station to take pictures from the outside, in part to provide data about the outer space health of the old space station. p>
After this maneuver, Endeavor follows Will and begins to re-enter. Earth's orbit. It will hit the Florida coast at 10:33 p.m. Monday (03:33 UTC Tuesday). NASA has yet to say whether the craft will land in the Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic Ocean, as it is still evaluating seven potential locations for the calmest seas. Missing in the past six months, the Frenchman has been a consistent source of first-class behavioral patterns. from space. p>
Looks like we won't be meeting our fellow #Crew3 on the space station. I'm sorry, I was happy to explain the important points of life here. P

When Endeavor lands and the crew heads safely to the center, space slowly returns, NASA and SpaceX will turn their attention to the launch of Crew-3. This requires the rapid transfer of naval assets, including ships involved in recovery operations. As a result, NASA is now older than 9:03 p.m. ET Wednesday (02:03 UTC Thursday). ) to launch Crew-3 from the Kennedy Space Center. Four astronauts will fly with Crew Dragon Endurance, NASA astronauts Raja Chari, Tom Marshbern and Kayla Baron, as well as European astronaut Matthias Maurer. Weather conditions are favorable for Wednesday night's launch from Florida. p>
After this schedule, the Crew-3 mission will dock with the International Space Station on Thursday and will spend the next six months traversing the circuit doing all kinds of science. and maintenance operations. p>
