A Tribute to The Expedition 68 Crew | International Space Station

A Tribute to The Expedition 68 Crew | International Space Station

Four Expedition 68 crewmates join each other for a meal inside the International Space Station's Harmony module. From left are, Commander Sergey Prokopyev and Flight Engineer Anna Kikina, both from Roscosmos (Russia), NASA Flight Engineer Frank Rubio, and Roscosmos Flight Engineer Dmitri Petelin (Russia).

(At far left and right) Astronauts Koichi Wakata of JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) and Nicole Mann of NASA are suited up in their Extravehicular Mobility Units (EMUs), or spacesuits, following a spacewalk on Feb. 2, 2023, to install hardware on the International Space Station's Port-6 truss structure. Assisting the duo out of their EMUs are NASA Flight Engineers (center left and right) Josh Cassada and Frank Rubio.
