Launching soon: Cosmic Kiss

German ESA astronaut Matthias Maurer will soon begin his first mission to the International
Space Station. As a member of Crew-3, he will be launched from @NASA's Kennedy Space Center in a @SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft alongside @NASA astronauts Raja Chari, Tom
Marshburn and Kayla Barron.

Matthias selected the mission name Cosmic Kiss for his time in orbit as a declaration of
love for space. He will spend around six months living and working in microgravity, where he
will carry out many European and international experiments to advance space exploration
and benefit lives on Earth.
