HomeTechnologyNASA's Crew-7 mission sent four astronauts to the ISS.

Space X launched its Falcon 9 rocket from the Kennedy Space Center, carrying four astronauts on NASA’s Crew-7 mission to orbit the International Space Station (ISS).

The mission included Jasmine Moghbeli of NASA, Andreas Mogensen of the European Space Agency, astronaut Satoshi Furakawa of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency and Russian cosmonaut Konstantin Borisov. The Crew Dragon spacecraft, named Endurance, autonomously rendezvoused with the ISS, bringing the station’s crew count to 11.

Three members of NASA’s last mission, Expedition 69, will return to Earth in a few days.

“The crew on the station will conduct more than 200 science experiments and technology demonstrations in preparation for missions to the Moon, Mars and beyond, all of which will benefit humanity here on Earth,” says NASA Administrator Bill Nelson.
