Expedition 70 Crew Photos: April-May 2024 | International Space Station

Expedition 71 crew members (from left) Alexander Grebenkin from Roscosmos (Russia) and Mike Barratt from NASA view laptop computer operations aboard the International Space Station's Unity module.
Flight Engineer Jeanette Epps practices cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), or chest compressions, on Flight Engineer Mike Barratt, both NASA astronauts, as Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexander Grebenkin monitors. The trio reviewed medical procedures, hardware configurations, and commnication protocols in the unlikely event of an emergency aboard the International Space Station.

NASA astronaut and Expedition 71 Flight Engineer Jeanette Epps extracts DNA samples from bacteria colonies for genomic analysis aboard the International Space Station's Harmony module. The research work may help researchers understand how bacteria adapts to weightlessness and develop ways to protect space crews and humans on Earth.
NASA astronaut and Expedition 71 Flight Engineer Tracy C. Dyson performs a Zero Robotics tech demonstration with Astrobee. Zero Robotics allows students on Earth to write software to control one of three free-flying Astrobee robots aboard the International Space Station. As part of an ongoing educational activity, students can then observe the performance of the robot without directly interacting with it.
    NASA astronaut and Expedition 71 Flight Engineer Tracy C. Dyson monitors a free-flying Astrobee robotic assistant inside the International Space Station's Kibo laboratory module. The Astrobee was being tested ahead of the Astrobee-Zero Robotics competition for students on Earth to write software that controls the cube-shaped, toaster-sized device on the orbital lab.

Expedition 70 Crew

Station Commander: Oleg Kononenko (Russia)

Roscosmos (Russia): Nikolai Chub, Alexander Grebenkin (Russia)

NASA: Tracy Dyson, Matthew Dominik, Mike Barrett, Jeanette Epps

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.
