They say the third is the charm. This Saturday the Crew-1 mission, promoted by NASA and Space X, will make its third attempt to leave for the International Space Station (ISS).
After two unsuccessful attempts, on October 23 and 31, this project promoted between the US space agency and the company founded by Elon Musk will take American astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover and Shannon Walker into space, as well as Japanese Soichi Noguchi .
The trip next Saturday will take place months after the test launch that took place between May and August, in which some astronauts were also taken to the space laboratory and specialists could be brought back without any problem.
