Canadian Space Agency astronaut David Saint-Jacques and his crewmates are targeted to launch to the International Space Station (ISS) on December 3, 2018.

 

This new launch schedule will help guarantee the continuity of world-class science and time-critical operations on the Space Station.

 

David has trained for two years for this mission and during the last five months, he has served twice as part of a backup crew.

 

David will bring a broad set of skills to the ISS. As a fully trained spacewalker and robotic operator, he will provide critical capabilities during a period when multiple spacewalks and maintenance tasks are required. As a medical doctor, David will ensure the crew is cared for in their remote outpost.
