SpaceX Crew-4 Launch

After a series of postponements due to weather-induced delays in the return of the Axiom-1 crewed mission to the International Space Station (ISS), which used the same docking port, NASA’s Crew-4 mission is scheduled to launch on 2022-04-27 at 07:52 UTC. The mission will take four astronauts, three from NASA and one from the European Space Agency, to the station for a six month stay. They will fly to the ISS in a new Crew Dragon vehicle named Freedom. The first stage booster, B1067, will be making its fourth flight. Weather is forecast as 90% favourable for launch. Here is a pre-flight preview from Everyday Astronaut.

The new Freedom Crew Dragon spacecraft features additional amenities including USB charging ports (only in business class).

On 2022-04-26, NASA held a pre-launch media teleconference about the flight, of which the following is an audio-only recording.
