SpaceX's Crew-3 Dragon mission is slated to bring NASA's Raja Chari, Thomas Marshburn and Kayla Barron, as well as German astronaut Matthias Maurer to the International Space Station. They'll replace outgoing astronauts from the Crew-2 flight and are expected to remain aboard the outpost for about six months before being replaced by the Crew-4 Dragon astronauts in the first half of 2022.

SpaceX is set to launch NASA's Double Asteroid Redirection Test, DART, atop a Falcon 9 rocket on a mission to be the agency's first mission to demonstrate an asteroid defense capability -- kinetic impact. The goal is to rendezvous with the small binary asteroid system Didymos to change the speed of its satellite asteroid companion Dimorphos by slamming an impactor on its surface.

Vehicle Falcon 9 (Crew Dragon)
Location Kennedy Space Center LC-39A
Time TBD

Axiom Space has contracted with SpaceX and NASA to fly the first private International Space Station crew for a weeklong stay at the outpost.

dod spacex
Vehicle Falcon Heavy
Location Kennedy Space Center LC-39A
Time TBD

SpaceX is set to launch its first Falcon Heavy rocket in more than two years by sending a classified payload into orbit for the United States Space Force. It'll deploy two spacecraft directly into a geosynchronous orbit. While the primary satellite is classified, a secondary micro-satellite called TETRA-1 is also set to be deployed. This will be the fourth flight of a Falcon Heavy and will involve the two side boosters landing on drone ships downrange while the center core will be expended

NET2022 Orbital Flight Test 2
nasa ula
Vehicle Atlas V 421
Location Cape Canaveral AFS SLC-41
Time TBD

Launching atop an Atlas 5 rocket in an "N22" variant* will be Boeing's second uncrewed Starliner test mission to the International Space Station, OFT-2. This was delayed from summer 2021 because of a problem with thrusters on the spacecraft's service module. *The variant designation means it will have no payload fairing, two solid rocket motors and two engines on the Centaur upper stage. Note: The image used in this entry shows the 421 variant.

NET2022 Starliner CFT
nasa ula
Vehicle Atlas V 421
Location Cape Canaveral AFS SLC-41
Time TBD

Launching atop an Atlas 5 rocket in an "N22" variant* will be Boeing's first crewed CST-100 Starliner mission to the International Space Station. It will see NASA astronauts Barry Wilmore, Michael Fincke and Nichole Mann fly to the outpost for at least one or two weeks. *The variant designation means it will have no payload fairing, two solid rocket motors and two engines on the Centaur upper stage. Note: The image used in this entry shows the 421 variant.

NET2022 Boeing Starliner-1
nasa ula
Vehicle Atlas V 421
Location Cape Canaveral AFS SLC-41
Time TBD

Launching atop an Atlas 5 rocket in an "N22" variant* will be Boeing's first operational crewed CST-100 Starliner mission to the International Space Station: Starliner-1. It will see NASA astronauts Sunita Williams, Josh Cassada and Jeanette Epps, as well as Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata. *The variant designation means it will have no payload fairing, two solid rocket motors and two engines on the Centaur upper stage. Note: The image used in this entry shows the 421 variant.
