The Crew of SpaceX Crew-1

The crew of SpaceX Crew-1 stand lined up in blue suits. They are smiling at the camera.

The crew of SpaceX Crew-1 pose for a picture after answering questions from the media following their arrival at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center ahead of SpaceX’s Crew-1 mission. Unlike the very first NASA crews to ever explore space, astronauts Shannon Walker and Soichi Noguchi (on the right) do not have a military background. They hold Ph.D.s in STEM-related fields and have additional qualifying expertise.
