NASA's SpaceX Crew-6 Mission Launches to the Space Station (Official NASA Broadcast)

Our #Crew6 mission to the International Space Station is targeted for liftoff at 12:34 a.m. EST (0534 UTC) on Thursday, March 2, 2023, from Launch Complex 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The Feb. 27 launch attempt was scrubbed so mission teams could investigate a ground systems issue. NASA astronauts Stephen Bowen and Warren "Woody" Hoburg, as well as UAE (United Arab Emirates) astronaut Sultan Alneyadi and Roscosmos cosmonaut Andrey Fedyaev, will launch aboard their Dragon Endeavour spacecraft atop a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.

This will be the fourth trip to space for Bowen, the Crew-6 mission commander, and the first space launch for the rest of the crew. They'll spend approximately six months on the station, helping us learn how to live in space while conducting research to make life better back on Earth.
