It turns out that The first Russian cosmonaut It will fly into orbit in America Dragon capsules from SpaceX Faster than we thought, already through the mission Crew 5. It is scheduled for September 2022. A week ago, the Crew-2 crew returned to Earth, and the Crew-3 crew consisting of Raja Chari (NASA), Tom Marshburn (NASA), Matthias Maurer (ESA) and Kayla Barron (NASA) flew into space.
