Astronaut expected to be 1st African-American Space Station crewmember won't fly in 2018 after all

... NASA astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor "... is taking the place of astronaut Jeanette Epps, who will return to NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston to assume duties in the Astronaut Office and be considered for assignment to future missions," NASA said in a statement.
"A number of factors are considered when making flight assignments; these decisions are personnel matters for which NASA doesn’t provide information," NASA spokesperson Brandi Dean said via email.

NASA bumps astronaut off space station flight in rare move

By MARCIA DUNN, AP AEROSPACE WRITER

... Epps is returning to Houston from Russia, where she'd been training to fly to the space station with a German and Russian. NASA spokeswoman Brandi Dean said Friday it was a decision by NASA, not the Russian Space Agency.

A cover-up :facepalm: Was she sick?

Jeanette Epps is not the only astronaut NASA has removed from their planned flights

Miriam Kramer

Mashable

... "NASA invests a lot of time, effort and money in training their astronaut crews, and stresses teamwork throughout, so the decision to remove an astronaut from a flight is never taken lightly," Pearlman said. News organizations profiled Epps and wrote about her expected upcoming flight, making the news of her reassignment all the more surprising ...

As her brother, you should know :great:

Speaking of Science
NASA pulled this astronaut from a space station crew. Her brother blames racism


By Sarah Kaplan


... “My sister Dr. Jeannette Epps has been fighting against oppressive racism and misogynist in NASA and now they are holding her back and allowing a Caucasian Astronaut to take her place!” Henry Epps wrote in a Facebook post Saturday, (The post has since been removed) he linked to a MoveOn.org petition asking NASA to reinstate Epps.

Epps said that she did not have a medical condition or family problem that would have prevented her from participating in the mission and that her overseas training in Russia and Kazakhstan had been successful.

I may be wrong but knowing politics and space it would appear publicly rather awkward but within NASA/CIA/WH decision makers this move was probably deemed extremely risky since she would be transported by a Russian Soyuz rocket from Kazakhstan yet. To have a former CIA technician (And like the Mafia, CIA agents never leave the agency) "Black or White" qualified in ELINT, COMINT and SIGINT specialist transported by a Russian Soyuz rocket from a Russian missile base to the ISS so soon after the joint NASA/Space-X secret spy satellite fiasco that seemed to disappear into thin air would really be a slap in the face to Putin. There have been a number of Black astronauts that have set foot on the ISS but as far as staying the night, several FOI's requesting confirmation of such have been either rejected or outright ignored. She'll have her day but not just yet.

Alongside Epps, Auñón-Chancellor was one of 14 astronaut candidates selected out of some 3,500 applicants for NASA's 20th astronaut class in 2009. She has a medical degree and previously served as a surgeon and managed medical operations for a range of NASA missions.

I can see where long term stay, a surgeon or Medical trained person would be rather more useful than another aerospace engineer,

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
