The astronauts launching to the International Space Station as part of NASA's SpaceX Crew-4 mission arrived Monday (April 18) at the agency’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida to undergo final preparations.
NASA astronauts Kjell Lindgren, Robert Hines and Jessica Watkins, and ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti landed at the Launch and Landing Facility at Kennedy after departing earlier from Ellington Field near the agency’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.
Crew-4 astronauts are scheduled to lift off at 5:26 a.m. EDT on Saturday, April 23, aboard a SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft and Falcon 9 rocket from Kennedy’s Launch Complex 39A. They are slated to arrive at the space station the following day, where they will begin their science mission aboard the orbiting laboratory. Docking is targeted for around 6:00 a.m. EDT on Sunday, April 24.
