The four-person crew slated to launch on NASA and SpaceX’s next mission to the International Space Station this weekend are pushing forward with preparations as mission managers check off last-minute hardware issues.

NASA’s Kayla Barron, Raja Chari | and Thomas marshburn, along with the European Space Agency’s Matthias Maurer, are prepping for their 2:21 a.m. Sunday liftoff from Kennedy Space Center, a six-month mission taking place on the International Space Station. Crew-3 marks SpaceX’s fourth crewed mission for NASA and fifth overall.

“We got to go see Endurance in the hangar as they got ready to roll it out to the pad and actually put our hands on our Dragon, which is a pretty special experience,” Chari, mission commander, told reporters Wednesday morning.
