SpaceX’s latest Crew Dragon capsule has a name.

NASA astronaut Raja Chari announced today (October 7) that the vehicle is called the Endurance. Shari is the captain of SpaceX Crew Mission 3, which is scheduled to launch toward the International Space Station aboard Endurance on October 30.

As the first-ever Endurance crew, Chari and fellow NASA astronauts Thomas Marshburn, Kayla Barron and Matthias Maurer of the European Space Agency had the honor of annotating a name on the spacecraft, which was formerly known as “Capsule 210”. Shari said that “stamina” works on multiple levels.

For starters, the name is “a tribute to the perseverance of the human spirit, as we push humans and machines further than we’ve ever been before,” Shari said in a short video ad:


It’s also “a reference to the fact that development teams and production teams [and] The coaching teams that brought us here have endured through a pandemic“Then of course, just the fact that we’re going to be reusing this car,” Shari added. So, one of the really cool things about SpaceX Dragon is that we’ll be the first to use stamina, but it won’t be the last time it’s used.”

Endurance will be the third Dragon Crew A vehicle to carry people into orbit. Capsule Endeavor flew SpaceX’s first-ever manned mission, a Demo-2 test flight to the space station in 2020, as well as Crew-2, which arrived at the orbital laboratory in April and is due to conclude next month.

Flexibility moved the Crew-1 mission to the station, which expired in May this year, and Inspiration 4, the first special mission to Earth orbit. Inspiration4 took billionaire tech entrepreneur Jared Isakman and three colleagues on a three-day cruise into orbit last month.

Like Shari and his crew, Crew 1 astronauts The coronavirus pandemic was martyred as a factor in their choice of the name “flexibility”.

Crew-3 astronauts will spend about six months on board International Space Station. Their mission will be the third operational mission SpaceX has flown under a contract signed with NASA’s Commercial Crew Program in 2014. Boeing signed a similar deal at the same time, but its CST-100 Starliner capsule has yet to fly astronauts into orbit.
