NASA completes seventh commercial crew mission to ISS

Washington: NASA completed its seventh commercial crew rotation mission to the International Space Station on Tuesday, according to a release.

“NASA’s SpaceX Crew-7 completed the agency’s seventh commercial crew rotation mission to the International Space Station on Tuesday after splashing down safely in a Dragon spacecraft off the coast of Pensacola, Florida,” the release stated.

The international crew of four, comprising NASA astronaut Jasmin Moghbeli, European Space Agency astronaut Andreas Mogensen, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Satoshi Furukawa, and Roscosmos cosmonaut Konstantin Borisov, spent 199 days in orbit.

During their mission, they contributed to various science and maintenance activities, experiments, and technology demonstrations, including the first study of human response to different space flight durations and an experiment growing food on the space station.

Moghbeli conducted one spacewalk, joined by NASA astronaut Loral O’Hara, and replaced one of the 12 trundle-bearing assemblies on the port solar alpha rotary joint, which allows the arrays to track the sun and generate electricity to power the station.

NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said that the science experiments conducted during their mission would help NASA prepare for future missions to the moon, Mars, and beyond.
