NASA Astronaut Mark Vande Hei and two Russian cosmonauts arrived at the International Space Station on Saturday. It brought the number to 10 residents for the coming week. Vande Hei, Novitskiy, and Dubrov were the three space explorers and will join Expedition 64 when hatches open about 9 a.m. EDT. Expedition 65 will begin just after the current mission scheduled on Friday, April 16.
In the year of historic monuments, the International Space Station surpassed its 20-year milestone of constant human presence, providing opportunities for regular technology demonstrations and research that help well prepare for the long-duration missions to the Moon. It also conducts missions on Mars and improves the quality of life on Earth. Until today 243 people from 19 distinctive countries have visited the orbiting laboratory that has hosted nearly 3,000 research investigations from researchers in 108 key areas.
For getting more updates on the mission, either you can follow Vande Hei journey on his Twitter handle or interact through the NASA channel which will air live in a couple of days. Researchers’ hard work could work through if the three astronauts are able to find content for technology development on the missions. Furthermore, we will see more space exploration on the alien planets following the success of NASA’s Perseverance rover.
