SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket on the launch pad that will take Crew-7 to the International Space Station. Inside is Crew Dragon Endeavour that will take to space ESA astronaut Andreas Mogensen, as Dragon pilot, NASA astronaut Jasmin Moghbeli as commander, Satoshi Furukawa from JAXA and Konstantin Borisov from Roscomos as mission specialists. Andreas and Crew-7 will launch from launch pad 39A. This is the launch pad for all crewed flights of SpaceX to the International Space Station, and it was previously used for the Shuttle and Apollo missions. As pilot of Crew-7, Andreas will take one of the two middle seats next to commander Jasmin Moghbeli and monitors the Dragon’s systems and performance during the journey to the International Space Station. The Huginn mission is Andreas’s second spaceflight to the International Space Station after his 10-day ‘iriss’ mission in 2015. When Endurance docks with the International Space Station, Andreas’s Huginn mission starts. Meaning ‘thought’ and originating from the raven of the Norse god Odin, the name brings together the story of the raven Huginn flying into the world to gather information, just as Andreas will go to International Space Station and collect information for science. Andreas will conduct more than 30 science and technology experiments during his Huginn mission, which are divided into three pillars: climate, health, and space for Earth.
