Meet the 4 astronauts SpaceX’s first operational human mission for NASA

The demon­stra­tion phase is over.

On Sun­day evening, SpaceX’s first oper­a­tional human mis­sion for NASA, called Crew‑1, will take off from the Kennedy Space Cen­ter in Flori­da. The crew con­sists of three NASA astro­nauts — Shan­non Walk­er, Mike Hop­kins, and Vic­tor Glover — as well as Japan Aero­space Explo­ration Agency astro­naut Soichi Noguchi.

After rough­ly 27 hours in flight, the Crew Drag­on space­ship car­ry­ing the four astro­nauts will dock to the Inter­na­tion­al Space Sta­tion, where NASA astro­naut Kath­leen Rubins and two Russ­ian cos­mo­nauts, Sergey Ryzhikov and Sergey Kud-Sver­chkov, will be wait­ing to greet them.
