International Space Station (ISS) Expedition 60 began June 24, 2019 when three members of the Expedition 59 crew said goodbye and returned to Earth leaving Alexey Ovchinin (RSA), Nick Hague (NASA), and Christina Koch (NASA) onboard with Ovchinin as the Expedition 60 commander.
They expect to be joined nearly a month later, on July 20, by three additional crew including Andrew Morgan (NASA), Luca Parmitano (ESA), and Alexander Skvortsov (RSA).
The crew will continue performing the more than two hundred technological demonstrations and science research experiments while operating and maintaining the station. In addition, at least one commercial resupply vehicle is expected to visit the ISS. The Expedition 60 crew may also have a ring-side seat to observe the first orbital flight of the Boeing CST 100 Starliner (uncrewed) in the fall.
Expedition 60 is expected to end in October, 2019.
