Rare move: NASA bumps astronaut, Syracusan off space station flight

Instead, a NASA release said Epps will be replaced by astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor , a fellow space rookie and member of the same astronaut class who had been assigned to a station flight scheduled for launch in November. It would have been the NY native's first trip to space, and the first long-duration stay at the orbiting outpost by an African-American. Nasa offered no explanation behind the choice to expel her from the Expedition 56/57 mission.
