Dragon Endurance 3

NSSDCA/COSPAR ID: 2023-128A

Description

Dragon Endurance 3 is a crewed space capsule designed by SpaceX to ferry crews to the International space station. It is based on the uncrewed Dragon supply capsule.

Dragon Endurance 3 carried astronauts from four countries to the ISS — Jasmin Moghbeli of NASA, the European Space Agency’s Andreas Mogensen, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Satoshi Furakawa, and Konstantin Borisov, a Russian cosmonaut. After the Dragon spacecraft — named Endurance — autonomously docked with the ISS, it brought the station’s crew number up to 11. In a few days, the three members of the previous NASA mission, Expedition 69, will return to Earth.
