He said: "But in the copies we had, one page was missing, and that was a problem". Researchers are now preserving and digitizing the new documents, after which they will work to pick through the scientific and mathematical meanings for the calculations found within their margins.
The spacewalk is expected to last seven hours. Two NASA astronauts are scheduled to carry out the first ever all female spacewalk in history on March 29. In 1983, Sally Ride became the first American woman to go to space during her historic flight on the space shuttle Challenger . McClain and Koch were part of the 2013 NASA class that was 50 percent women.
The astronauts have begun procedures ahead of Crew Dragon's undocking at 2:31 a.m. Friday. It's the first commercial flight to dock with the ISS and it's the first American made crew-carrying spacecraft to be launched by the USA in eight years.
The launch systems are aimed at ending US reliance on Russian rockets for rides to the $100 billion orbital research laboratory, which flies about 250 miles (400 km) above Earth, at about $80 million per ticket. Boeing aims to conduct the first test flight of its Starliner capsule in April, with astronauts on board possibly in August. No one was aboard the Dragon capsule launched Saturday on its first test flight, only an instrumented dummy.

Under this, SpaceX has launched the Crew Dragon. From blast-off at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Saturday to contact Sunday, the flight took 27 hours. It will be slowed by four parachutes, in what is the one of the mission's riskiest stages.The launch is a key step towards resuming manned space flights from USA soil after an eight-year break.
