22 Juillet, 2019, 03:23 | Auteur: Therese Cote

Skvortsov, Morgan and Parmitano all come from military backgrounds and posed together in uniform in the build up to the launch. "The Expedition 60 crew will continue work on hundreds of experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science aboard humanity's only permanently occupied microgravity laboratory". Coverage of the SpaceX launch will air on NASA Television and the agency's website beginning at 6 p.m.

Parmitano will be going up to the station for the second time in his career. They will be joining Roscosmos Expedition 60 Commander Alexey Ovchinin, as well as NASA astronauts Nick Hague and Christina Koch. Ovchinin, Hague and Koch have been aboard the ISS since March.

Hague and Morgan are scheduled to conduct a spacewalk no earlier than mid-August to install the docking port, connect power and data cables, and install a new high-definition camera as part of ongoing upgrades to the station's external camera system.

Today's launch will be the first spaceflight for Morgan.

Speaking at a pre-launch news conference in Baikonur, Parmitano, 42, said the crew were "lucky and privileged" to have their launch coincide with the Apollo 11 date, and indicated that they were wearing badges honouring the anniversary. Such significant events demonstrate how important it is to go forward.

Morgan will be joined inside the Soyuz MS-13 spacecraft by Luca Parmitano of the European Space Agency and Alexander Skvortsov of the Russian space agency Roscosmos.
