ВАШИНГТОН, 17 апр - РИА новости. Первый испытательный пилотируемый полет корабля Crew Dragon состоится 27 мая, сообщил в пятницу директор НАСА Джим Брайденстайн.

"Двадцать седьмого мая американские астронавты вновь стартуют на американской ракете с американской земли", - написал Брайденстайн в своем Twitter.

Предстоящий полет станет первым пилотируемым стартом американского космического корабля с 2011 года.

Ранее сообщалось, что первый испытательный полет корабля Crew Dragon к Международной космической станции (МКС) осуществят астронавты Даг Херли и Боб Бенкен. Пилотируемый корабль выведет на орбиту также принадлежащая компании SpaceX ракета-носитель Falcon 9.

Ранее Crew Dragon совершил беспилотный испытательный полет к МКС, также было успешно проведено испытание экстренной эвакуации экипажа на случай аварийного старта ракеты.

...

Behnken will be the joint operations commander for the mission, responsible for activities such as rendezvous, docking and undocking, as well as Demo-2 activities while the spacecraft is docked to the space station. He was selected as a NASA astronaut in 2000 and has completed two space shuttle flights. Behnken flew STS-123 in March 2008 and STS-130 in February 2010, and he performed three spacewalks during each mission. Born in St. Anne, Missouri, he has bachelor's degrees in physics and mechanical engineering from Washington University and earned a master's and doctorate in mechanical engineering from California Institute of Technology. Before joining NASA, Behnken was a flight test engineer with the U.S. Air Force.




Hurley will be the spacecraft commander for Demo-2, responsible for activities such as launch, landing and recovery. He was selected as an astronaut in 2000 and has completed two spaceflights. Hurley served as pilot and lead robotics operator for both STS‐127 in July 2009 and STS‐135, the final space shuttle mission, in July 2011. The New York native was born in Endicott but considers Apalachin his hometown. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Tulane University in Louisiana and graduated from the U.S. Naval Test Pilot School in Maryland. Before joining NASA, he was a fighter pilot and test pilot in the U.S. Marine Corps.

NASA's Aerospace Safety Advisory Panel (ASAP) is conducting its Q2 meeting. Notes they will meet with NASA CCP next month, but DM-2's May 27 launch date "appears feasible". Some open items.

("Open Items" are not unusual, ahead of the FRR/LRR phase).

NASA will host a series of televised briefings on Friday, May 1, to preview the upcoming Demo-2 mission to the International Space Station. Demo-2 will mark the first launch of American astronauts aboard an American spacecraft from American soil since the conclusion of the space shuttle era in 2011.

NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley will fly to the station aboard a SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft launched by a Falcon 9 rocket from Kennedy Space Center's Launch Complex 39A. Liftoff is slated for May 27.

Originating from the agency's Johnson Space Center in Houston, all three briefings will be broadcast live on NASA Television and online at www.nasa.gov/live. Times are provided in Eastern.
