ONLY  three crew for Expedition 58?  When the next crew arrive on Soyuz MS- 12 will that be Expedition 59?

Expedition 58 will begin after Soyuz MS-09 undocking on December 20, Expedition 59 - after Soyuz MS-11 undocking on June 25, Expedition 60 - after Soyuz MS-12 undocking on October 3, Expedition 61 - after Soyuz MS-13 undocking on February 6.

New Crew Blasts Off Heading to Space Station Today

Mark Garcia Posted on December 3, 2018

The Soyuz MS-11 launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to the International Space Station at 6:31 a.m. EST Monday, Dec. 3 (5:31 p.m. in Baikonur) and have safely reached orbit.  At the time of launch, the station was flying about 250 miles over central Kazakhstan southwest of the capital of Astana, 405 miles ahead of the Soyuz as it leaves the launch pad.

NASA astronaut Anne McClain, David Saint-Jacques of the Canadian Space Agency, and Oleg Konenenko of the Russian space agency Roscosmos have begun their six-hour trip to the orbital laboratory where they will live and work for the next six-and-a-half months.

The arrival will briefly restore the station’s crew complement to six as they join Serena Auñón-Chancellor of NASA, Expedition 57 Commander Alexander Gerst of ESA (European Space Agency) and Sergey Prokopyev of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, who are scheduled to remain aboard the station until Dec. 20.

Just days after their arrival, the crew members will capture the SpaceX Dragon cargo resupply spacecraft set to launch Tuesday from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and deliver more than 5,800 pounds of critical research and supplies.

At 9:30 a.m., NASA TV will broadcast from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida a briefing to highlight the science and research on board the Dragon.

Following the science briefing, NASA TV will then broadcast beginning at 11:15 a.m. the arrival of the agency’s first asteroid sample return mission as the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft is set to rendezvous with asteroid Bennu.

Coverage of the Soyuz docking to the International Space Station will begin on NASA TV’s media channel and the agency’s website beginning at 11:45 a.m. and be broadcast on all channels following the conclusion of OSIRIS-REx coverage expected at 12:15 p.m., with the spacecraft docking expected at 12:36 p.m.

Coverage of the hatch opening between the Soyuz and the space station will begin at 1:45 p.m.

Exp 58 Trio Docks to Station Six Hours After Launch Today

Mark Garcia Posted on December 3, 2018

The Soyuz spacecraft carrying NASA astronaut Anne McClain, David Saint-Jacques of the Canadian Space Agency, and Oleg Konenenko of the Russian space agency Roscosmos docked to the International Space Station at 12:33 p.m. EST while both spacecraft were flying about 251 miles over the Atlantic Ocean.

Aboard the space station, Expedition 57 Commander Alexander Gerst of ESA (European Space Agency), Serena Auñón-Chancellor of NASA, and Sergey Prokopyev of Roscosmos will welcome the new crew members when the hatches between the two spacecraft are opened following standard pressurization and leak checks.

Watch the hatch opening targeted for 2:35 p.m. and welcome ceremony to follow live on NASA TV and the agency’s website beginning at 1:45 p.m.

Things change so quickly...

From someone: "To get the Expeditions back in synch, Expedition 58 will end and 59 will begin at the 58S (Soyuz MS-12 - my note) docking for one time only instead of the usual undocking to undocking formula"

Weird how the image background is Europe (Southeast England between Oleg and Anne is quite recognisable, the rest I'm having trouble with...) when the crewmembers are American, French Canadian and Russian, any specific reason Expedition 58 is associated with nighttime Western Europe other than "It looks cool"?

ISS Daily Summary Report – 12/19/2018

55 Soyuz (55S) Undock and Landing: The 55S crew, Sergey Prokopev, Alexander Gerst, and Serena Auñón -Chancellor, are scheduled to return to Earth tonight. Undock is scheduled for 7:40 PM CT with landing at 11:03 PM CT. The crew is scheduled to arrive at Ellington on Friday, December 21.

Bone Densitometer Calibration: The crew performed the calibration for the Bone Densitometer using a phantom (calibration) mouse.  Approximately the size of a consumer microwave oven, the Bone Densitometer (BD) uses X-rays to measure the bone mineral density (and the lean and fat tissue) of mice living aboard the ISS. As a result, researchers hope to develop medical technology that will combat bone density loss in space and on Earth, helping millions of senior citizens who suffer from osteoporosis.  Bone Densitometer will be used to support the ongoing Rodent Research-8 investigation.

Functional Immune and Standard Measures (separate investigations): Blood and Saliva samples were collected in support of the Functional Immune and Standard Measures investigations.  The Functional Immune Alterations, Latent Herpesvirus Reactivation, Physiological Stress and Clinical Incidence Onboard the International Space Station (Functional Immune) investigation analyzes blood and saliva samples to determine the changes taking place in crew members’ immune systems during flight.  The aim of the Standard Measures investigation is to ensure consistent capture of an optimized, minimal set of measures from crewmembers until the end of the ISS Program in order to characterize the adaptive responses to and risks of living in space.

Time Perception: The crew performed the Time Perception experiment using a virtual reality headset and headphones. A laptop program induces visual and audio stimuli to measure a subject’s response to spatial and time perception in a microgravity environment. The accurate perception of objects in the environment is a prerequisite for spatial orientation and reliable performance of motor tasks. Time is fundamental to motion perception, sound localization, speech, and fine motor coordination.

Good job today! And good-bye
SEDA-AP, which was terminated, left the # ISS today
SEDA-AP was installed at the outboard exposure part from the beginning of operation of "Kibo", and we observed neutrons, heavy ions, etc descending from space. The long-term data greatly contributes to spacecraft design and low earth orbit activities.

International Crew to Ring in Christmas 50 Years After First Moon Trip

Mark Garcia Posted on December 21, 2018

Three people from the U.S., Canada and Russia are orbiting Earth today getting ready to observe Christmas and experience New Year’s Eve from space aboard the International Space Station. Back on Earth, another three station crew members have returned to their home bases just 24 hours after completing a 197-day mission aboard the orbital lab.

The first time three humans spent Christmas in space was 50 years ago in 1968 during Apollo 8 and was also the first time a crew orbited the Moon. This Christmas astronauts Anne McClain of NASA and David Saint-Jacques of the Canadian Space Agency with cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko of Roscosmos will be soaring about 250 miles above the Earth’s surface in a much larger spacecraft. The Expedition 58 trio will share a traditional meal aboard the orbital lab, share gifts and call down to family during their off-duty day.

Kononenko is beginning his fourth mission on the station and will spend his second Christmas in space. McClain and Saint-Jacques are getting used to life in space for the first time and will return to Earth in June with Kononenko.

NASA astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor returned to Houston late Thursday just one day after landing in Kazakhstan wrapping up her six-and-a-half month stay aboard the orbital lab. She parachuted to Earth inside the Soyuz MS-09 spacecraft with her Expedition 57 crewmates Alexander Gerst of ESA (European Space Agency) and Sergey Prokopyev of Roscosmos.

Is there any way to determine absolute times from these archived streams?  I'm trying to find the jettison
time, ideally to the nearest minute.

In accordance with the flight program of the International Space Station (ISS), on December 27, 2018, a planned correction of the ISS orbit was performed.
To accomplish the maneuver, at 06:05 Moscow time, the propulsion system of the Progress MS-10 cargo vehicle attached to the International Space Station was turned on. Engine running time was 337.5 seconds. As a result, the station received a speed increment of 0.65 m / s.In accordance with the data of the ballistic-navigation support of the Mission Control Center, the parameters of the ISS orbit after the execution of the maneuver were:
the minimum height above the Earth’s surface is 404.4 km,
the maximum height above the earth's surface is 422.8 km,
circulation period - 92.62 min.,
orbit inclination - 51.66 degrees.
The purpose of the correction was the formation of ballistic conditions for launching into orbit and docking with the ISS of the Soyuz MS-12 transport manned spacecraft planned for March 2019.

It seems the first news about successful jettison broke on Twitter already on Dec. 20 at 22:55 UTC: https://twitter.com/tqdays/status/1075887369914589184
