The Crew-7 crew members now are boarding SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft. As they board, their seats are configured in the upright position; later, prior to closure of the spacecraft’s side hatch, the seats will rotate into a reclined position for flight.

All four crewmates signed the inside of the White Room, an area at the end of the crew access arm that provides access to the spacecraft. The term “White Room” dates back to the Gemini program. To honor tradition, the room is still painted white today.
