Expedition 38/39 Mission Overview

Commander Oleg Kotov, veteran of two previous station missions, leads Expedition 38 as the six-member crew conducts advanced microgravity research aboard the International Space Station. Flight Engineers Mike Hopkins and Sergey Ryazanskiy, who launched with Kotov Sept. 25, are both on their first spaceflight missions.

Flight Engineers Rick Mastracchio, Koichi Wakata and Mikhail Tyurin delivered the Olympic torch to the station Nov. 6. Kotov and Ryazanskiy carried the torch outside the station during a spacewalk Nov. 9.

Expedition 36/37 crew members Fyodor Yurchikhin, Karen Nyberg and Luca Parmitano returned the torch when they landed in Kazakhstan Nov. 10 as part of the traditional relay leading up to to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
