On June 26, US Eastern Time, NASA astronauts saw the SpaceX manned spacecraft docked on the International Space Station during a spacewalk, and the astronauts said the entire image looked “fantastic,” according tomedia reports.
When NASA astronauts Chris Cassidy and Bob Behnken stepped out of the International Space Station to replace solar cells, they saw SpaceX’s Endeavour manned dragon spacecraft. On May 30, the Endeavour manned dragon spacecraft sent Bainken and NASA astronaut Doug Hurley to the International Space Station.
Cassidy took a picture of the Endeavour spacecraft, which is also clearly visible from NASA’s HTV-9 cargo ship. Beneath the spacecraft, the Earth’s stunning blue arc can be seen.
Bainken wrote on Twitter, “Yesterday Cassidy took a clear picture of the manned Dragon spacecraft and NASA’s HTV cargo ship at our workplace. It’s good to see the scenery at work…”
“Chris and I attended an important event last week and enjoyed the beautiful Dragon spacecraft,” Bainken said at a media briefing on the International Space Station. “It’s great to be able to go back and take pictures, I think we shot it well in the sun, and both The TV and the Dragon spacecraft were very clear. That’s great. “
As part of the spacewalk, astronauts will replace aging nimh batteries with new, more efficient and smaller lithium-ion batteries. Bainken and Cassidy will conduct another spacewalk on July 1st to continue replacing the batteries.
The Endeavour manned dragon spacecraft is currently continuing testing the Demo-2 mission. “Our ship is doing very well,” Bainken said at a media briefing on Monday. I think they’ve made a lot of predictions, like how it will change with temperature and how it will change with the radiation of computers and electronic devices. Everything was as expected. “
He added that the Endeavour spacecraft’s positive performance has been “a real confidence factor for Doug and Me.” “
