SpaceX Crew 3 finally in space
Breaking news! NASA and SpaceX will launch the Crew-3 Dragon mission to ISS (international space station), don't miss it! You can watch below!
More about the mission you can find in our old articles. We wll tell you more details after launch.
Update mission: SpaceX and NASA's Crew-3 mission successfully took off at 9:03 p.m. EST Nov. 10, Wednesday from Launch Complex 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Then, on November 11 at 7:10 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 11. docked on the ISS (International Space Station). But a lot has happened during this time.
For example, a few minutes after takeoff, it was noticed in the ship that a toy in the shape of a turtle was floating. Then after a minute, it was seen that one of the members of the team, apparently, maybe even Astronaut Kayla Barron played with that toy, and then put it back. As you can see in the pictures below, the toy was floating, which meant they were already in Earth's orbit.
But let's go back before takeoff. Before taking off, the astronauts were taken with some cars to the platform from where they were to take off. As NASA collaborates with SpaceX, SpaceX is owned by Elon Musk, Elon Musk owns Tesla, the cars were Tesla brand with NASA name on them. We return to space. Astronaut Mark Vande Hey celebrates his birthday on the ISS (International Space Station) in the American segment (and perhaps the only one of its kind in space). That is, even when the ship arrives on the ISS.
The mission was canceled three times before taking off, the first time it had to take off on October 31, 2021, for Halloween. You can read more about these delays in our old articles. These delays led astronaut Mark to celebrate his birthday in space, one of the few astronauts. It was probably a coincidence between the postponements of the missions and his birthday. But there were also some optimists, as can be seen in the following comment: "Sometimes when you try to fly on Halloween, you get a trick rather than a reward," Chari told SpaceX Mission Control before launch.
It was a pretty good and beautiful mission overall.
We hope that the Crew 3 mission will be able to do a lot on the ISS, as SpceX wished the astronauts: "Welcome to the ISS."
