David Saint Jacques' mission patch represents the power of dreams. By igniting human creativity and genius, dreams lead to progress. It also evokes the central role that space exploration has played in the evolution of our perspective of life on Earth.

The North Star (dreams) and compass rose (reason) make up the central element of the patch. In the same way that these have provided direction for explorers, dreams guide and inspire us without becoming an end in themselves.

The trail of the star is composed of four colours. Red (energy and passion), orange (creativity) and white (science) stand for the human ability to innovate and push the limits of what is possible. The blue portion is crescent-shaped, resembling the reflection off a lens, and symbolizes the international collaboration so crucial to the space program in the past, present and future.

The other four stars represent the men and women who work behind the scenes, putting all their talent to work to ensure this Canadian mission is a success. They also signify the astronaut’s family, the shining constellation of which he is most proud.

Finally, like a blue jewel in the universe, Earth figures prominently on the patch. From space, our planet can be seen in its full splendour but also in all its fragility. Space exploration gives us a new perspective on our world, fosters our environmental responsibility, and fuels our dreams of peace.

MEDIA ADVISORY M18-128

Media Invited to News Conference with NASA Astronaut Anne McClain and Space Station Crewmates

NASA astronaut Anne McClain, along with her crewmates, Davis Saint-Jacques of the Canadian Space Agency and Oleg Kononenko of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, will discuss their upcoming mission to the International Space Station in a news conference at 2 p.m. EDT Thursday, Sept. 6, at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.

The news conference will be broadcast live on NASA Television and on the agency’s website. The crew will be available afterward for in-person and remote media interviews.

The crew is scheduled to launch Dec. 20 aboard the Soyuz MS-11 spacecraft from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

McClain, Saint-Jacques and Kononenko will join the station’s Expedition 58 crew and will return to Earth in June 2019 as members of Expedition 59. This will be the first spaceflight for both McClain and Saint-Jacques. Kononenko will be making his fourth trip to the space station and will serve as the commander of Expedition 59.

U.S. reporters wishing to participate in the news conference in person or to reserve an in-person or telephone interview opportunity must contact Johnson's newsroom at 281-483-5111 by 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 5.

Reporters who wish to participate in the news conference by telephone must call Johnson's newsroom no later than 1:45 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6. Those following the briefing on social media may ask questions using the hashtag #askNASA.

During a planned six-month mission, the crew will facilitate about 250 research investigations and technology demonstrations not possible on Earth to advance scientific knowledge of Earth, space, physical and biological sciences. Among them, McClain is expected to take part in one of the first Tissues on Chips investigation, which will launch to the orbiting laboratory this fall aboard a SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft. The experiment will use miniature models of living organ tissues on transparent microchips to replicate the complex biological functions of specific organs, thus enabling studies of the effects of reduced gravity on organs at the cell and tissue levels.

Science conducted on the space station continues to yield benefits for humanity and will enable future long-duration human and robotic exploration into deep space, including the Moon and Mars.

The crew also is scheduled to be in space during one of the uncrewed test flights of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program, which will resume human spaceflight launches from U.S. soil.

McClain, a native of Spokane, Washington, is a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army. As a senior army aviator, she has logged more than 2,000 hours in 20 different rotary and fixed-wing aircraft.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical and aeronautical engineering from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. She earned a master’s degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Bath, in England, and a master’s degree in international relations from the University of Bristol, also in England.

Oleg Kononenko: Training at "RSC Energia" in preparation for his fourth flight to the ISS.
He tested simulators simulating the operation of onboard devices, in particular, the communication system, which will be used on board the ISS in the future. The cosmonaut has studied the new photographic equipment which will allow to make more qualitative photo and video shooting from an orbit, and has fixed skills on cleaning of a matrix of a camera-this procedure should be regularly carried out with the technics which for a long can be on Station…..

Possible change of orbital plans

According to the agency interlocutor, the transfer of the launch of the next Progress MS-10 cargo ship to mid-November is being discussed. Initially, the launch was planned for October 31, but until the causes of the accident were clarified, all launches of the Soyuz-FG missiles were suspended.

The next manned ship, on the contrary, can be sent to the station earlier than the originally planned date in order not to preserve the station: the launch of the Soyuz MS-11 was scheduled for December 20, and the return of the crew now docked to the Soyuz MS-09 station is for several days earlier.

There will be a short handover period before Auñón-Chancellor, Gerst and Prokopyev depart the station on Dec. 20. McClain, Saint-Jacques and Kononenko are scheduled to return to Earth in June.

During their six-month mission, the crew will facilitate about 250 research investigations and technology demonstrations not possible on Earth to advance scientific knowledge of Earth, space, physical and biological sciences.

Among them, McClain is expected to take part in one of the first Tissues on Chips investigations, which will launch to the station aboard a SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft. This investigation will enable researchers to explore the effects of reduced gravity on organs at the cellular and tissue levels. In this research, the complex biological functions of specific organs are replicated using an advanced combination of miniature organ tissue models on transparent microchips. Such research on the space station yields benefits on Earth and will enable future long-duration human exploration into deep space, including the Moon and Mars.
