NASA astronaut Rick Mastracchio and fellow crewmates who are scheduled to travel to the International Space Station in November conduct a news conference from NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston.
Mastracchio, Koichi Wakata of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, and veteran cosmonaut Mikhail Tyurin of the Russian Federal Space Agency, make up the space station Expedition 38 crew. This mission will be Koichi Wakata's fourth flight into space and second long-duration mission on the station and in March 2014, he will also become the first Japanese commander of the space station. The mission marks Mikhail Tyurin's third long-duration stay on the space station.
The trio will launch in their Soyuz TMA-11M spacecraft from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on Nov. 6. They are scheduled to return to Earth in May 2014.
