The ISS has given SpaceX and NASA’s Crew-2 a home and place to work for six months, focusing on different innovations and advancements that the world has been receiving. Of course, the study that these astronauts have done is focused on giving different ideas with regards to space life and how it is different from the happenings on Earth.

This and many more focuses on the different crew members of Endeavour.

SpaceX’s Crew-2 and Crew-3

The SpaceX Crew-3 has been delayed not once, twice, or thrice, but four times for its departure for the mission that would bring the group to the ISS, in time for the transition of astronauts. Despite that, the Crew-3 has already departed and is on its way to the space station for their mission’s fruition coming now and fulfilling their roles in the floating spacecraft.

The return of the Crew-2 astronauts has been a loud one, as it brings a sonic boom to its descent back to the surface it affecting the Mississippi residents on their sleep. Nevertheless, the change of the astronauts has been made and it continues with their research and focuses that each crew member has when staying above.

The International Space Station remains a haven for all space crew to get together, despite the different nationalities and origins that they have, being a place to hold a historical place of influential men and women. The ISS may be old and full of patches, but it remains operational to this day. However, it may be so that it would be changed soon, to accommodate more studies and a longer lifespan.
