Change and transition on the station

The reins of the International Space Station were passed from Fyodor Yurchikhin to fellow Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kotov during a ceremony on the orbital outpost on Nov. 8. Kotov will become commander of Expedition 38 when Expedition 37 officially ends with the departure of Yurchikhin, NASA Flight Engineer Karen Nyberg and European Space Agency Flight Engineer Luca Parmitano on Nov. 11, Kazakh time, in their Soyuz spacecraft. Kotov, NASA Flight Engineer Michael Hopkins and Russian cosmonaut Sergey Ryazanskiy were joined on Nov. 7 by Russian flight engineer Mikhail Tyurin, NASA Flight Engineer Rick Mastracchio and Flight Engineer Koichi Wakata of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency.
