Before the crew Crew Dragon mission Demo-2 to take place on May 27, SpaceX and NASA shared important details about the mission. Important phases of the task and the average tenure were among the shared information.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the most popular space company, SpaceX , will test an important mission in the coming weeks. This test, conducted by NASA and SpaceX, has important details in several respects for both companies.
Will be held on May 27. Demo-2 mission at SpaceX and NASA for a long time we saw Crewe Dragon is the first time the crew will test a way. This test will feature SpaceX's first manned launch. On the other hand, the mission will be the first time NASA launched an astronaut with a US-made rocket since 2011 . While the world was looking forward to the task, representatives from SpaceX and NASA shared important information about the mission.
The critical task of NASA and SpaceX:
The first information shared by the representatives was that this task was still a test . The mission will be a test of SpaceX's Crew Dragon and whether the Falcon 9 rocket can be used in other manned missions as well.
SpaceX will do its best to prove itself in the mission, which will begin on May 27 . According to the statement made by NASA , the task will cover between 30 days and 119 days , so the task will take longer than planned. Of course, the term of office may vary based on some factors.
SpaceX and NASA representatives shared information that we had not heard of today. Accordingly, the Crew Dragon vehicle will have not only astronauts, but also some cargoes to the International Space Station (ISS) . The tool will also deliver scientific materials to the ISS.
Stages of the task:
At the start of the joint mission of NASA and SpaceX, the Falcon 9 rockets on top of Crew Dragon will be fired. Then the separation of the second stage pushers will take place. At this point, the main rocket, the Falcon 9 rocket, will start to land on the drone ship
' Of Course I Still Love You '.
Before Falcon 9 lands on earth, Crew Dragon will leave the second tier pushers and set off towards the ISS. The vehicle will have reached ISS between 2 hours and 48 hours, depending on the location of the ISS at launch time . Launch time may vary depending on weather or many different factors.
Crew Dragon will automatically dock to the station when it approaches ISS. At this point, no human intervention will be required , everything will happen automatically. When the spacecraft is docked to the station, the pressure will be rebalanced, the doors will open, and astronauts will continue to work with colleagues at the station.
Here, astronauts who have completed various missions will get on Crew Dragon again and prepare to enter the atmosphere. After entering the atmosphere, the vehicle will open its parachutes and slowly descend towards the Atlantic Ocean. It will take approximately 24 hours for the vehicle to leave the ISP and land in the ocean .
