Three individuals from the Worldwide Space Station’s Campaign 57 team, including NASA space traveler Serena Auñón-Chancellor, came back to Earth Thursday, securely arriving at 12:02 a.m. EST (11:02 a.m. neighborhood time) in Kazakhstan.
Auñón-Chancellor and her crewmates, Undertaking 57 Administrator Alexander Gerst of ESA (European Space Office) and Soyuz Officer Sergey Prokopyev, propelled June 6 and touched base at the space station two days after the fact to start their central goal. More than 197 days, they circumnavigated the globe multiple times, covering 83.3 million miles.
Throughout the previous 16 days of her main goal, Auñón-Chancellor was joined by individual NASA space traveler Anne McClain, denoting the first run through in which the main two U.S. space travelers on a mission both were ladies.
The Campaign 57 group added to several trials in science, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science on board the world-class circling research facility. Features included examinations concerning new disease treatment strategies and green growth development in space. The team likewise introduced another Life Sciences Glovebox, a fixed work zone forever science and innovation examinations that can oblige two space travelers.
This was the primary trip for Auñón-Chancellor and Prokopyev and the second for Gerst, who – with a sum of 362 days in circle – presently holds the flight term record among ESA space travelers.
Prokopyev finished two spacewalks totaling 15 hours and 31 minutes. Amid a 7 hour, 45 minute spacewalk Dec. 11, he and Oleg Kononenko of Roscosmos recovered fix tests and took advanced pictures of a fix made to the home module of the Soyuz MS-09 in which the Endeavor 57 trio rode home. The space station group found and, inside hours of its identification, fixed a little gap inside the Soyuz in August. The shuttle was completely checked and considered safe for come back to Earth.
At the point when the Soyuz undocked at 8:40 p.m. Dec. 19, Endeavor 58 started on board the station, with McClain, David Holy person Jacques of the Canadian Space Organization, and Kononenko involving a three-man team. The following occupants on the space station – Scratch Hague and Christina Koch of NASA and Alexey Ovchinin of Roscosmos – will dispatch Feb. 28 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to join their crewmates, denoting the beginning of Campaign 59.
For over 18 years, people have lived and worked constantly on board the station, progressing logical learning and exhibiting new advancements, making research leaps forward impractical on Earth that will empower long-term human and automated investigation into profound space. A worldwide undertaking, in excess of 230 individuals from 18 nations have visited the one of a kind microgravity lab that has facilitated in excess of 2,400 research examinations from specialists in excess of 103 nations.
