SpaceX Dragon crew enter International Space Station

WASHINGTON, March 3, 2023 (BSS/AFP) - Four astronauts entered the 
International Space Station on Friday after their SpaceX Dragon Crew-6 
mission successfully docked, a NASA livestream showed.

The SpaceX Dragon Endeavour spacecraft arrived at the orbiting station at 
0640 GMT on Friday, the US space agency said in a statement.

NASA's Stephen Bowen and Warren Hoburg, Russia's Andrey Fedyaev and Sultan 
al-Neyadi of the United Arab Emirates entered the station about two hours 
later, the livestream showed.

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying the spacecraft had blasted off to the 
station on Thursday after the launch was scrubbed just minutes before liftoff 
earlier in the week.

The crew will spend six months on the station, where they will conduct more 
than 200 science experiments and technology demonstrations, according to 

The mission was the first space flight for Neyadi, Hoburg and Fedyaev.

Neyadi, 41, is the fourth astronaut from an Arab country and the second from 
the oil-rich UAE to journey to space.

Fedyaev is the second Russian cosmonaut to fly to the ISS aboard a SpaceX 
rocket. NASA astronauts fly regularly to the station on Russian Soyuz craft.

Space has remained a rare venue of cooperation between Moscow and Washington 
since the Russian offensive in Ukraine placed them in sharp opposition.
