The American manned Crew Dragon spacecraft with two astronauts, Doug Hurley and Bob Benken, will return from the ISS to Earth in August. This was announced on June 24 by the head of the NASA commercial flight program, Steven Stitch.
According to him, the exact date of return depends on the employment of astronauts on the International space station, for example, on the number of spacewalks.
“We plan to return in early August… the earliest is August 2,” Stitch said at a briefing.
On May 30, SpaceX’s Falcon 9 launch vehicle with the first Crew Dragon manned vehicle created in nine years in the United States successfully launched from Cape Canaveral. On may 31, the ship successfully docked to the International space station.
NASA astronaut Bob benken on arrival at the ISS told about the impressions of the flight.
