They include Shane Kimbrough and Megan McArthur, who will also serve as spacecraft commander and pilot, respectively.

They speak about concept, design, and production processes for the SpaceX suit - which NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken both wore on their Demo-2 mission launch aboard the Dragon to the International Space Station at the end of May.

In 2014, NASA admitted two settled-value records: $4.2 billion for Boeing and $2.6 billion to SpaceX, which wanted to plan a group commendable form of the Dragon case that had just been flying payload to and from the International Space Station. The agency revealed the four people that will fly aboard that launch, including two NASA astronauts, as well as one from the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and one from the European Space Agency (ESA). The spacecraft carried NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley in May, marking the first-ever launch from the a commercially built and operated American crew spacecraft to the ISS. More astronauts will allow NASA and other partner space agencies to conducted a considerably higher amount of science experiments in space, which is a great boon for future research. Thomas' second mission to the International Space Station will be called Alpha.

Born in Killeen, Texas, and raised in Atlanta, Kimbrough was selected as an astronaut in 2004.

The astronaut first launched aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour in 2008 and then launched aboard the Russian Soyuz in 2016. He has spent a total of 189 days in space, performed six spacewalks and is a retired Army colonel. Also, that will make ready for a Crew Dragon case to be propelled on its first completely operational strategic, the space station, Crew-1, which is scheduled for late September.

She was born in Honolulu but considers California to be her home state.

She earned her wings aboard STS-125, the final space shuttle mission to the Hubble Space Telescope. After the Shuttle program finished, the space office needed to depend on Russia's Soyuz vehicles to ship NASA organizations to the ISS, and the United States has spent Russian Federation as much as $90 million for every seat for those outings.

Crew-2 will be Hoshide third spaceflight as he was part of Expeditions 32 and 33 and in 2012 he spent 124-days at the ISS.
