NASA's SpaceX Crew-6 Astronauts' Recap (Official NASA Briefing)

5 months ago
Following their six-month stay aboard the International Space Station, the members of NASA's SpaceX Crew-6 mission are safely back on Earth. NASA astronauts Stephen Bowen and Woody Hoburg and UAE (United Arab Emirates) astronaut Sultan Alneyadi will speak about their mission for the first time after returning to Earth on Sept. 4, answering questions from media and the public. Fellow crew member Andrey Fedyaev of Roscosmos is unable to participate in the news conference due to travel.

During the mission, Bowen and Hoburg completed two spacewalks, and Alneyadi became the first UAE astronaut to conduct a spacewalk. With 10 spacewalks throughout his missions, Bowen ties the record for most excursions by a U.S. astronaut, also held by four others.

While aboard the station, Crew-6 contributed to hundreds of experiments and technology demonstrations, including conducting a student robotic challenge, studying plant genetic adaptations to space, and monitoring human health in microgravity to prepare for exploration beyond low Earth orbit and to benefit life on Earth.
