Three men and a woman in a “crew dragon” from the private space agency SpaceX arrived at the International Space Station on Saturday. When they met the other astronauts, everyone involved was overjoyed: they hugged, exchanged friends’ tears, and laughed freely together. “You can see their excitement,” a voice commented from the filmed scene.
The four astronauts were launched Friday from Cape Canaveral in Florida with the help of a Falcon 9 missile. There are now 11 in ISS. “The space shuttle has not been in such large numbers since time immemorial,” SpaceX commented Twitter.
“Crew-2” will now be on the ISS for about six months. It includes two American astronauts, Shane Kimbero and Megan McArthur, and their Japanese counterparts, Akihiko Hosheit and Frenchman Thomas Pesket. Pesket was the first astronaut to fly to the European Space Agency (ESA) on board the “Crew Dragon”. Flew to. The “Crew Dragon” carried about 110 kilograms of objects and materials for scientific experiments with astronauts.
