The SpaceX Crew-3 team, consisting of NASA astronauts Raja Chari, Kayla Barron, and Tom Marshburn, and ESA astronaut Matthias Maurer, and support personnel participate in water survival training at the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in this image from April 2021. The mission is slated to launch in late 2021.

When Barron, Chari, Marshburn, and Maurer arrive at the orbiting laboratory, they will become expedition crew members for the duration of their six-month science mission. The crew will have a slight overlap with the Crew-2 astronauts, who arrived April 24. This will mark the second time commercial crew missions have overlapped on the station. The Crew-1 astronauts, who ended their mission with a splashdown off the coast of Panama City, Florida, on Sunday, May 2, were aboard the station with the Crew-2 astronauts for a seven-day direct crew handover. Increasing the total number of astronauts aboard the station enables the agency to boost the number of science investigations conducted in the unique microgravity environment.

这张照片摄于2021年4月,由NASA宇航员拉贾·查里(Raja Chari)、凯拉·巴伦(Kayla Barron)和汤姆·马什伯恩(Tom Marshburn)本组成的SpaceX Crew-3号宇航员和欧洲航天局宇航员马蒂亚斯·毛雷尔(Matthias Maurer)以及支持人员在NASA约翰逊航天中心的中性浮力实验室参加生存训练。该任务计划于2021年底发射

当巴伦、查里、马什伯恩、和毛雷尔到达轨道实验室时,他们将成为探险队成员,完成为期六个月的科学任务。宇航员将与4月24日抵达的Crew-2号宇航员有少许重合。这将是空间站第二次出现商业载人任务重叠的情况。5月2日,Crew-1号宇航员在佛罗里达州巴拿马城海岸降落,结束了他们的任务。他们与2号机组的宇航员在空间站上进行了为期7天的人员直接交接。增加空间站上宇航员的总数,可以使NASA增加在独特的微重力境下进行的科学调查的数量。
