As an update to an earlier Space Saturdays post – Liftoff! SpaceX launches 1st astronauts for NASA on historic test flight – Space.com Space Saturdays May 30, 2020, I decided to check on how the team was doing. From NASA’s blog – New SpaceX Crewmates Wrap Up First Workweek Aboard Station – June 5, 2020: https://blogs.nasa.gov/spacestation/2020/06/05/new-spacex-crewmates-wrap-up-first-workweek-aboard-station/

New station Flight Engineers Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken are still in a handover period as they wrap up their first work week in space. The astronauts familiarized themselves today with medical kits, the food pantry, communication systems and safety procedures. They also continued researching space bubbles in microfluids and unpacked Japan’s HTV-9 resupply ship, which arrived six days before they did.
