Expedition 62 Mission Patch

Description
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). Expedition 62 Commander Oleg Skripochka (RSA) and flight engineers Andrew Morgan (NASA) and Jessica Meir (NASA) remained behind.

While operating and maintaining the station, the Expedition 62 crew continued 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 remained a crew of three until April 9, 2020 when the Soyuz MS-16 arrived with the Expedition 63 crew aboard. Expedition 63 Commander Chris Cassidy (NASA), and flight engineers Anatoly Ivanishin (RSA) and Ivan Vagner (RSA) became part of the Expedition 62 crew for eight days before Skripochka turned command over to Cassidy and the Expedition 62 crew departed the station.

Expedition 62 concluded April 17, 2020.
