Expedition 64 began on October 21, 2020 as the Expedition 63 crew undocked their Soyuz MS-16 from the ISS and returned to Earth. The first three of seven expected Expedition 64 crewmembers stayed behind to continue settling in. The crew includes Expedition 64 commander Sergey Ryzhikov (RSA), flight engineer Kate Rubins (NASA), and flight engineer Sergey Kud-Sverchkov (RSA).
The Expedition 64 crew will be complete with the arrival of Crew-1, the first operational mission utilizing the SpaceX Crew Dragon. Onboard the Dragon will be Crew Dragon commander Michael Hopkins (NASA), pilot Victor Glover (NASA) and mission specialists Shannon Walker (NASA) and Soichi Noguchi (JAXA). The launch date of Crew-1 is uncertain, but is expected to occur in early to mid-November.
While operating and maintaining the space station's systems, the Expedition 64 crew will continue to operate the many science experiments in progress as well as initiate new investigations and undertake technology demonstrations. Several spacewalks are planned and several unpiloted spacecraft are expected to visit the ISS bringing supplies. The Boeing Starliner CST-100 may also complete its uncrewed flight test to the ISS this winter.
Expedition 64 is expected to conclude in April, 2021
