Expedition 67 Crew Photos: Summer 2022 | International Space Station

NASA astronaut Jessica Watkins holding a Plate Habitat (PHAB) at -20°C prior to insertion into the Space Automated Bioproduct Laboratory (SABL) incubator aboard the International Space Station (ISS). The goal of the Protein Manufacturing project is to demonstrate the use of a novel bioreactor technology for growing high-protein food on the International Space Station (ISS).

Expedition 67 Flight Engineer and ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti packs experiment containers for the Biofilms investigation aboard the International Space Station. The biotechnology study explores ways to protect astronaut health and maintain spacecraft safety from microbes living in the orbiting's lab environment.

NASA astronaut Bob Hines is shown performing Genes in Space-9 aboard the International Space Station (ISS). Cell-free technology is a platform for protein production that does not include living cells. GIS-9 evaluates two approaches for using this technology in microgravity: cell-free protein production and biosensors that can detect specific target molecules. The technology could provide a portable, low-resource, and low-cost tool with potential applications for medical diagnostics, on-demand production of medicine and vaccines, and environmental monitoring on future space missions.

Expedition 67 Crew

Commander Oleg Artemyev (Russia)
Roscosmos Flight Engineers: Denis Matveev and Sergey Korsakov (Russia)
NASA Flight Engineers: Kjell Lindgren, Bob Hines, Jessica Watkins (USA)
European Space Agency (ESA) Flight Engineer: Samantha Cristoforetti (Italy)

An international partnership of space agencies provides and operates the elements of the  International Space Station (ISS). The principals are the space agencies of the United States, Russia, Europe, Japan, and Canada. The ISS has been the most politically complex space exploration program ever undertaken.
