NASA will broadcast live to the International Space Station the departure of the currently docked Mission Axiom 1. The difference will take place this Saturday (23), at 21:35 (Brazilian time), but the broadcast with preparations will start earlier, at 19:15.
The video is available on the NASA website, the Axiom Space website, the NASA app, and also on the space agency YouTube.
Mission Axiom 1 is expected to land off the coast of Florida in the United States at approximately 2.46 a.m. Sunday (24th).
Axiom is the first private astronaut mission to visit the International Space Station. Four crews, Commander Michael López-Alegría, pilot Larry Connor and experts Eytan Stibb and Mark Pathy spends 16 days in space.
The date, time, and trajectory for the ISS separation and voyage back to Earth were determined in collaboration with Axiom Space, NASA, and SpaceX, the manufacturer of the Dragon Endeavor spacecraft. These parameters depend on the good weather conditions on the planet – a variation that the teams from the space agency and the two companies follow throughout the day.
THE dragon Pursuitreturns to the ground more than 90 kg of supplies and resources for scientific research.
