In this video of Frank Rubio with the Televisa channel (in Spanish), around minute 7:30 when he is asked about the extension of the mission he says: "At the end of the month we will know, we don't know if it will be 3 or 6 months more".

Timing of the launch of the next expedition to the ISS will be determined during a meeting of the State Commission, to be held on March 24. Oleg Kononenko, deputy chief of the TsPK and commander of the cosmonaut detachment of Roscosmos, told reporters on Wednesday.
"There will be a meeting of the state commission this Friday, where the date of the launch of my expedition will be determined," Kononenko said in response to when his next flight is scheduled.

Have they announced if Soyuz MS 23 is coming home in June. I just wondered if theirs been an announcement made, & have they announced who’s commanding expedition 71, if I had to guess Caldwell or ovchinin the first half & whoever flies on crew 8 the second half.

The Expedition 69 thread is not the place for Expedition 71 questions.
I apologize

Uncrewed Soyuz Spaceship Lands in Kazakhstan


Mark Garcia Posted on March 28, 2023

The uncrewed Roscosmos Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft made an automated, parachute-assisted landing in Kazakhstan at 7:46 a.m. EDT (5:46 p.m. Kazakhstan time) on Tuesday after undocking from the International Space Station at 5:57 a.m.

Remaining aboard the station is the seven-person crew of Expedition 69 with Station Commander Sergey Prokopyev of Roscosmos, NASA astronauts Stephen Bowen, Woody Hoburg, and Frank Rubio, UAE (United Arab Emirates) astronaut Sultan Alneyadi, and Roscosmos cosmonauts Andrey Fedyaev and Dmitri Petelin.

Do we have NASA confirmation this actually is the Expedition 69 patch? As it was designed as part of Kononenko's original Soyuz MS-23 mission, it is strange another commander would now use it...

Expedition 69 Officially Begins on Station

The Expedition 69 mission is officially under way following the undocking of the Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft on Tuesday. The seven-member International Space Station crew split its day on Wednesday as the four astronauts conducted space research while the three cosmonauts had the day off.

The uncrewed Soyuz MS-22 space ship completed a six-month stay at the orbiting lab when it undocked from the Rassvet module at 5:57 a.m. EDT on Tuesday. The undocking marked the moment Expedition 69 began and Expedition 68 ended with Roscosmos cosmonaut Sergey Prokopyev continuing his command aboard the space station. The passengerless MS-22 parachuted to a safe landing in Kazakhstan less than two hours later.

Meanwhile, science and health checks filled the day for the astronauts belonging to the Expedition 69 crew. Flight Engineers Frank Rubio of NASA and Sultan Alneyadi of UAE (United Arab Emirates) worked on the BioFabrication Facility testing its ability to print knee cartilage tissue for treating injuries in space and remote environments on Earth. The pair also participated in neck, shoulder, and leg vein scans using the Ultrasound 2 medical device.

The station’s three cosmonauts, including Prokopyev and Flight Engineers Dmitri Petelin and Andrey Fedyaev, relaxed on Wednesday taking time out for their daily exercise sessions. The trio from Roscosmos having prepared the MS-22 vehicle for its departure the day before.

ISS Daily Summary Report – 3/28/2023


Bill Keeter Posted on March 28, 2023

Payloads:

Ampli Space Pharmacy: Ampli Space Pharmacy hardware was stowed. The Ampli Space Pharmacy investigation studies the properties of chemical reactions of fluids flowing through membranes in microgravity. Researchers can use resulting information to refine an existing organic synthesis and bioprocessing approach to produce new compounds. This modular approach could provide a way to make medicines.

BioFabrication Facility (BFF)-Meniscus: Tissue cassettes were inserted into the BFF for printing operations. The syringe swap, print operations and removal were aborted when it was discovered that one of the print nozzles was clogged. The clog was cleared and the BFF was setup to make another print attempt tomorrow. BFF Assembled Next-gen Development of Collagenous Allograft Meniscal Prosthetics aboard the International Space Station (BFF-Meniscus) evaluates the feasibility of using the BFF to print a meniscus. The tissue is printed using a combination of collagen and human allogenic mesenchymal stem cells and allowed to develop into mature tissue. Scientists evaluate the tissue’s mechanical properties and compare it to identically bioprinted tissues on Earth.

Cardiobreath: The BioMonitor wearable hardware was donned and acquired data during a Cycle Ergometer with Vibration Isolation & Stabilization (CEVIS) exercise period. Astronauts experience changes in their cardiovascular, respiratory, and musculoskeletal systems during spaceflight, which can affect their capacity to exercise and to maintain blood pressure when standing after return to Earth. Causal Analysis of Cardiorespiratory Coupling on the ISS (Cardiobreath) studies the combined effects of cardiovascular and respiratory adaptations on blood pressure regulation during spaceflight. Results could provide a better understanding of the mechanisms of these adaptations on long-duration missions and support development of methods for assessing cardiovascular and respiratory effects on blood pressure before and after spaceflight.

Life Science Glovebox (LSG): The Glovebox USB Camera was removed from LSG. LSG is a sealed work area that accommodates life science and technology investigations in a “workbench” type environment. Due to its larger size design, two crew members can work in LSG simultaneously.

Vascular Aging: Sample Collections Data indicates that aging-like changes are accelerated in many ISS crew members, particularly with respect to their arteries. As part of the Space Environment Causes Acceleration of Vascular Aging: Roles of Hypogravity, Nutrition, and Radiation (Vascular Aging) investigation, ultrasounds of the arteries, blood samples, oral glucose tolerance, and wearable sensors from ISS crew members are analyzed.

Veg-05: The Root Mats were removed and trashed. The Pick-and-Eat Salad-Crop Productivity, Nutritional Value, and Acceptability to Supplement the ISS Food System (Veg-05) investigation is the next step in efforts to address the need for a continuous fresh-food production system in space.

Systems:

Advanced Resistive Exercise Device (ARED) Upper Stop Cable Remove and Replace (R&R): The crew R&R’d the right upper stop cables. Replacement is necessary when the cables have excessive wear and failure is eminent. The ARED uses adjustable resistance piston-driven vacuum cylinders along with a flywheel system to simulate free-weight exercised in normal gravity.

Transfer Cargo Dragon Cargo Operations: The crew continued transferring science experiments, crew provisions, and hardware from the SpX-27 cargo vehicle to the ISS.

Network Attached Storage (NAS) Operations: The crew installed the NAS device in Columbus and connected it to the 16-Port Ethernet Switch for the initial configuration. The crew then performed the NAS device final install by disconnecting LAN cable from the 16-Port Ethernet Switch and connecting them to the COL Patch Panels. NAS is a file-level computer data storage server connected to a computer network providing data access to a heterogeneous group of clients.

Completed Task List Activities:

    None

Today’s Ground Activities:
All activities are complete unless otherwise noted.

    Cygnus Gimbal Movement, Repress, and SIGI Power On
    HRF1 Signal Analogue Downlink
    BFF Tissue Cassette Operations
    HRF Rack 1 and 2 Power Up Commanding
