NASA and SpaceX now are concentrating on October 31 for the launch of the company’s SpaceX Crew-1 mission with astronauts to the Worldwide House Station.

The US area company had earlier focused October 23 for the launch of the mission which comes after the SpaceX Demo-2 check flight which flew astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley to the area station.

The brand new goal date which falls on Halloween will deconflict the Crew-1 launch and arrival from upcoming Soyuz launch and touchdown operations, NASA mentioned on Monday.

Whereas a Soyuz capsule launch is scheduled for October 14, a Soyuz departure from area station is about to happen on October 21.

NASA mentioned the extra time is required to make sure closure of all open work, each on the bottom and aboard the station, forward of the Crew-1 arrival.

The Crew-1 mission will take astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, and Shannon Walker of NASA and Soichi Noguchi of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Company (JAXA) to the station on the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft on a Falcon 9 rocket from Launch Advanced 39A at NASA’s Kennedy House Centre in Florida.

The launch would be the first time a global crew will fly aboard a NASA-certified, commercially-owned and operated American rocket and spacecraft from American soil.

Following the launch, the Crew-1 astronauts are scheduled to reach on the area station for a six-month science mission aboard the orbiting laboratory.

NASA mentioned it’s within the last levels of the info evaluations wanted forward of certification following the company’s SpaceX Demo-2 check flight.
