Preparations are wrapping up for SpaceX's crewed mission to the International Space Station (ISS), which is expected to occur from 22 April, with the return of Crew-1 from 28 April.
To achieve a smooth docking process, Crew-1 is expected to move the Dragon Resilience from the docking hub to provide entry space for Crew-2. This will further provide space to access the ISS's new solar arrays from the capsule.
Onboard the missions will be Shane Kimbrough and Megan McArthur of NASA, Akihiko Hoshide of JAXA and Thomas Pesquet of the ESA.
