Congrats to Astronaut Scott Kelly

Kelly to Become First Two-Time U.S. Space Station Commander.

Personnel-wise, it’s going to be a busy couple of weeks:

Date Event
Friday, 4 September Soyuz Progress arrives with 3 astronauts (Aidyn Aimbetov — Kazakhstan, Andreas Mogensen — Denmark, Sergei Volkov — Russia)
Saturday, 5 September Change of Command Ceremony. Russia’s Gennadi Padalka (holding the record for most days in space cumulative, and 4-time ISS commander) is relieved by Scott Kelly, the first 2-time ISS commander for the US.
Saturday, 12 September Padalka, Mogensen, and Aimbetov leave the ISS on board TMA-16M and land on Earth three hours later
