It involved a four person crew: Astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker, and JAXA Japanese Partner Astronaut, Soichi Noguchi. The Crew-1 docked to Station following a 27.5 hour flight. The mission took place on the Anniversary of another historic mission in space flight, the launch of Expedition 1, 20 years ago to the International Space Station. For 20 years, these missions have been “advancing humanity by using the space station to learn how to explore farther than ever before, while also conducting research and technology demonstrations benefiting life back on Earth.”
