Astronaut Victor Glover was assigned to the first mission to the International Space Station onboard SpaceX’s Crew Dragon, during an event on Friday, Aug. 3, 2018, at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. Other astronauts assigned to crew the first flight tests and missions of the Boeing CST-100 Starliner and SpaceX Crew Dragon also were announced during the event.

Glover piloted SpaceX’s Crew Dragon, which splashed down on May 2, 2021, that carried fellow NASA astronauts Michael Hopkins and Shannon Walker, and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Soichi Noguchi. The mission returned to Earth in a parachute-assisted splashdown at 2:56 a.m. EDT off the coast of Panama City, Florida. Crews aboard SpaceX recovery vessels successfully recovered the spacecraft and astronauts.
