Expedition 37/38/39 Joint Crew News Conference

Nine International Space Station crew members gathered inside the Destiny laboratory for a joint crew news conference Friday morning. This is the first time since October 2009 that nine people have resided on the station without the presence of a space shuttle.

Expedition 38/39 crew members Mikhail Tyurin, Koichi Wakata and Rick Mastracchio took a six-hour trip to the station Wednesday after launching in a Soyuz TMA-11M spacecraft from the Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan. The new trio delivered the Olympic torch that will light the flame at the opening of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia.

Expedition 37/38 crew members Mike Hopkins, Oleg Kotov and Sergey Ryazansky launched Sept. 25 aboard a Soyuz TMA-10M spacecraft. Kotov and Ryazanskiy will conduct a spacewalk Saturday morning carrying the Olympic torch outside the station.

Expedition 36/37 crew members Fyodor Yurchikhin, Karen Nyberg and Luca Parmitano arrived at the station May 28. They will return home Sunday inside a Soyuz TMA-09M spacecraft after a 5-1/2 month stay in space bringing back the Olympic torch.
