International Space Station
Expedition 62 began February 6, 2020 with the undocking of the Soyuz MS-13 from the International Space Station (ISS) with three Expedition 61 crew aboard (Aleksandr Skvortsov, Luca Parmitano, and Christina Koch). Transferring from Expedition 61 to Expedition 62 are the Expedition 62 Commander Oleg Skripochka (RSA) and flight engineers Andrew Morgan (NASA) and Jessica Meir (NASA).
While operating and maintaining the station, the crew will continue performing more than two hundred research experiments including technological demonstrations as well as biology, Earth science, human science, and physical science investigations.
The Expedition 62 crew may remain a crew of three or be augmented by additional crew before the mission ends. The first manned commercial crew vehicle is projected to arrive during Expedition 62, but the launch date remains uncertain. More information will be provided as it becomes available.
Expedition 62 is expected to end in April 2020.
