SpaceX’s CrewDragon crewed spacecraft on Monday re-docked automatically to the International Space Station (ISS), but this time to another gateway of the Harmony module. The broadcast is conducted on the website of the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
It had previously separated from the ISS as part of a re-docking operation.
Four crew members-Americans Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker, and Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi are on board the ship Resilience.
The re-docking took about 40 minutes.
As noted in NASA, the re-docking is necessary to make room for another Crew Dragon – Endeavour ship. It is planned that on April 23, Americans Shane Kimbrough and Megan MacArthur, Japanese Akihiko Hoshide, and Frenchman Tom Pesquet will be delivered to the ISS.
The operation to re-dock Crew Dragon was carried out on the ISS for the first time. Hopkins, Glover, Walker, and Noguchi arrived at the Resilience station on November 16 last year. They are expected to return to Earth on the same ship on April 28. Currently on the ISS are also Russians Sergey Ryzhikov, Sergey Kud-Sverchkov, and American Kathleen Rubins.
