SpaceX’s Crew-3 astronauts dish on their action-packed 6 months in orbit


From dodging space debris to welcoming the first-ever fully private astronaut mission to the International Space Station, SpaceX’s Crew-3 mission had a very eventful six months off Earth.

Crew-3 docked with the International Space Station (ISS) on Nov. 11, and the mission’s four astronauts witnessed a rapidly changing space environment almost from the moment they arrived. For example, a Russian anti-satellite test on Nov. 16 created a cloud of debris that soon forced the astronauts to shelter in their SpaceX Dragon capsule Endurance as a precaution.
