NASA astronaut Jack Fischer and cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, who are targeted to launch to the International Space Station in March, participated in a news conference Nov. 30, at the agency’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.
Fischer, a first-time space flyer, and veteran cosmonaut Yurchikhin will launch to the space station in late March from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to round out Expedition 51. During their planned five-month mission, Fischer and Yurchikhin will take part in approximately 250 research investigations and technology demonstrations not possible on Earth in order to advance scientific knowledge of Earth, space, physical, and biological sciences. Science conducted on the space station continues to yield benefits for humanity and will enable future long-duration human and robotic exploration into deep space, including the agency’s Journey to Mars.
