Please use this topic to discuss SpaceX's Crew Dragon Crew-6 mission to the International Space Station.

NASA astronauts Stephen Bowen and Woody Hoburg, together with a United Arab Emirates (UAE) astronaut and an international partner crew member, both still to be named, will fly the Crew-6 mission.

Bowen's last flight in STS-133 ended in March 2011. Given that Crew-6 should fly somewhere around April 2023 that will be a 12+ year span between flights. That's got to rank up there amongst longest intervals between flights for US astronauts. Does anyone know what the longest interval between flights is for US astronauts? Thank you!

John Glenn (36 years). Who knows, maybe Aldrin will hitch a ride on Blue Origin and break that record.

Bowen is a nice guy but you gotta feel for Michael Barratt, Tracy Caldwell and Doug Wheelock who are unassigned and last flew before Bowen's last flight (Barratt with him). Also hoping Jeremy Hansen gets a seat on Crew-6 or Crew-7.
