PRE-LAUNCH INTERVIEWS WITH NASA ASTRONAUT CHRIS CASSIDY, Mar 19, 2020, Star City, Russia, 7:00-8:30 am ET

(NASA TV)

On March 19, 2020, NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy will participate in media interviews from Star City, Russia where he is in the final stages of training for the Soyuz MS-16 mission to the International Space Station (ISS).

The interviews will take place from 7:00 – 8:30 am ET and air on NASA TV and NASA Live.

Cassidy originally was slated to fly to ISS with Russian cosmonauts Nikolai Tikhonov and Andrei Babkin, but they were replaced with their backups, Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Vagner, because Tikhovov had to be removed for medical reasons after suffering an injury.

Launch of Soyuz MS-16 is scheduled for April 9 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.  They will remain on ISS for 6.5 months.
