NASA's Randy Bresnik, Crewmates Arrive at International Space Station

The Russian Soyuz MS-05 carrying NASA astronaut Randy Bresnik, Sergey Ryazanskiy of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, and Paolo Nespoli of ESA (European Space Agency) docked to the International Space Station at 5:54 p.m. on Friday, July 28, 2017.

After a six-hour spaceflight, NASA astronaut Randy Bresnik, Sergey Ryazanskiy of Roscosmos and Paolo Nespoli of ESA (European Space Agency) arrived at the International Space Station at 5:54 p.m. EDT Friday to continue important scientific research in the orbiting laboratory.

The three crewmates launched aboard the Soyuz MS-05 spacecraft from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 11:41 a.m. (9:41 p.m. Baikonur time), orbited Earth four times, and docked at the space station. Following standard pressurization and leak checks, the hatches between the spacecraft and station will be opened.

The arrival of Bresnik, Ryazanskiy and Nespoli restored the station's crew to six people, which includes Expedition 52 Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin of Roscosmos and Flight Engineers Peggy Whitson and Jack Fischer of NASA. The new Expedition 52 crew members will spend more than four months conducting approximately 250 science investigations in fields such as biology, Earth science, human research, physical sciences and technology development.

The newly-expanded Expedition 52 crew soon will conduct new science investigations arriving on SpaceX’s 12th NASA-contracted commercial resupply mission targeted to launch in August. Investigations the crew will work on include a study developed by the Michael J. Fox Foundation of the pathology of Parkinson’s disease to aid in the development of therapies for patients on Earth. The crew will use the special nature of microgravity in a new lung tissue study to advance understanding of how stem cells work and pave the way for further use of the microgravity environment in stem cell research. Expedition astronauts also will assemble and deploy a microsatellite investigation seeking to validate the concept of using microsatellites in low-Earth orbit to support critical operations, such as providing lower-cost Earth imagery in time-sensitive situations such as tracking severe weather and detecting natural disasters.

During their expedition, the crew members also are scheduled to receive an Orbital ATK Cygnus spacecraft launched from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia and a Russian Progress resupply mission, each delivering several tons of food, fuel, supplies and research such as an investigation to demonstrate the merits of manufacturing fiber optic filaments in microgravity.

Whitson, Fischer and Yurchikhin are scheduled to remain aboard the station until September. Shortly after their departure, NASA astronauts Mark Vande Hei and Joseph Acaba and Russian cosmonaut Alexander Misurkin will join the Expedition 53 crew. Bresnik, Ryazanskiy and Nespoli are scheduled to return in December.

For more than 16 years, humans have lived and worked continuously aboard the International Space Station, advancing scientific knowledge and demonstrating new technologies, making research breakthroughs not possible on Earth that will enable long-duration human and robotic exploration into deep space. A global endeavor, more than 200 people from 18 countries have visited the unique microgravity laboratory that has hosted more than 1,900 research investigations from researchers in more than 95 countries.

美国宇航局的Randy Bresnik,船员抵达国际空间站

俄罗斯联盟宇宙飞船MS-05携带美国宇航局宇航员Randy Bresnik,俄罗斯航天局Roscosmos的Sergey Ryazanskiy和ESA(欧洲航天局)的Paolo Nespoli于2017年7月28日星期五下午5时54分停靠在国际空间站。

 经过六个小时的航天飞行后,美国宇航局宇航员Randy Bresnik,俄罗斯空军司令 Roscosmos的Sergey Ryazanskiy和欧空局的Paolo Nespoli 在美国东部时间星期五下午5:54 抵达国际空间站,在轨道实验室继续进行重要的科学研究。

三名机长在上午11:41(拜科努尔时间晚上9:41)在哈萨克斯坦拜科努尔航天发射场上发射的联盟号MS-05飞船上,四次绕地球,并停靠在空间站。按照标准加压和泄漏检查,航天器和车站之间的舱口将被打开。

Bresnik,Ryazanskiy和Nespoli的到来使车站的乘务员恢复了6人,其中包括Roscosmos的远征52指挥官Fyodor Yurchikhin和飞行工程师Peggy Whitson和NASA的Jack Fischer。新的Expedition 52船员将花费四个多月的时间,在生物学,地球科学,人类研究,物理科学和技术开发等领域进行大约250项科学调查。

新扩展的Expedition 52船员很快将进行新的科学调查,到达SpaceX的第十二个NASA承包商业补给任务,目标是在八月份推出。研究人员将开展工作,包括由迈克尔·福克斯基金会发展的帕金森病病理学研究,以帮助开发地球患者的治疗。机组人员将在新的肺组织研究中使用微重力的特殊性质,以提高对干细胞如何工作的理解,为干细胞研究中微重力环境的进一步使用铺平道路。远征宇航员还将组装和部署微卫星调查,试图验证在低地球轨道上使用微型卫星的概念,以支持关键作战,

在他们的考察中,机组人员还计划从美国航空航天局在弗吉尼亚州的瓦洛普斯飞行设施发射的轨道ATK天鹅座航天器和俄罗斯进步补给任务,每个任务提供数吨食物,燃料,用品和研究,如调查表明在微重力下制造光纤丝的优点。

惠灵顿,费舍尔和尤奇欣将于9月份前往该车站。离开后不久,美国航空航天局的宇航员马克·凡德·海和约瑟夫·阿卡巴以及俄罗斯的宇航员亚历山大·米苏尔金将加入53名远征队。Bresnik,Ryazanskiy和Nespoli计划在12月返回。

16年来,人类在国际空间站上不断生活和工作,推进了科学知识和展示新技术,使得地球上不可能实现的研究突破,使长期的人类和机器人探索成为深空。全球共有来自18个国家的200多人参观了独特的微重力实验室,该实验室已在95多个国家的研究人员进行了1900多次研究调查。
