On board the 4 astronauts of the SpaceX Crew-6 flight arrived on the orbiting station with this shuttle on March 3rd


The SpaceX Dragon Endeavour spacecraft has been successfully moved, which is now docked to the front hatch of the International Space Station's Harmony module. A maneuver that lasted about 38 minutes and was conducted by the 4 astronauts of the Crew-6 mission who arrived on the ISS on March 3rd: Bowen, Hoburf, Alneyadi and Fedayev. The operation was carried out to facilitate the arrival of the 28th resupply mission of the orbiting station, operated by SpaceX via the Dragon spacecraft and expected in June. The return to Earth of the 4 astronauts is scheduled for August. This is the 27th "relocation" of shuttles in the history of the ISS.
