International Space Station  The International Space Station is a collaboration of 15 nations working together to operate a world-class, state-of-the-art orbiting laboratory.

NASA astronauts Serena Auñón-Chancellor (background) and Anne McClain work inside the Japanese Kibo laboratory module cleaning vents to maintain air circulation aboard the International Space Station.

Cosmonauts Oleg Kononenko (suit with red stripes) and Sergey Prokopyev (suit with blue stripes) completed a spacewalk today lasting 7 hours and 45 minutes to inspect the Soyuz MS-09 crew vehicle that will return to Earth next week with three Expedition 57 crew members.

Spacewalkers spot the patched hole on the hull of the Soyuz crew vehicle where a pressure leak was detected and fixed in August. The Soyuz spaceship will return three Expedition 57 crew members to Earth Dec. 19.

This time-lapse video shows the out-of-this-world ride Oleg Kononenko took on the tip of Strela boom operated by Sergey Prokopyev. The two spacewalkers are working outside the space station to inspect the Soyuz crew vehicle today.

A pair of veteran Russian spacewalkers will exit the International Space Station Tuesday around 11 a.m. EST for six hours of inspection work on a Soyuz crew vessel. Oleg Kononenko (first pic from February 2012) and Sergey Prokopyev (second pic from August 2018) will examine the Soyuz MS-09 spacecraft that will return three Expedition 57 crew members to Earth Dec. 19.

Dragon arrived at the station today and new Flight Engineer Anne McClain caught a photograph of two dragons! "The number of Dragons on space station just doubled! Congratulations to SpaceX on a successful launch, and to all the teams across the world who enable such amazing feats!" #nasa #spacex #dragon #csa #unitedstates #canada #international #space #station

The SpaceX Dragon is chasing the International Space Station today to be gracefully captured by a robotic arm early Saturday. Here, Dragon is pictured in July of 2018 approaching the orbital lab as both spacecraft were orbiting over the Greek island of Crete.

The @SpaceX Dragon blasted off today at 1:16 p.m. EST on a three-day ride to the space station. The cargo craft will deliver over 5,600 pounds of science, supplies and hardware to the Expedition 57 crew when it arrives Saturday at around 6 a.m. #nasa #spacex #dragon #international #space #station #astronaut

See that small space station? It's a badge of honor on the @SpaceX Dragon capsule, launching today! The silhouette denotes that this same capsule has previously visited the station -- specifically, in support of the company's 10th commercial resupply mission in February 2017.

Expedition 57 Commander Alexander Gerst of ESA (European Space Agency) peers out the International Space Station's "window to the world," the seven-windowed cupola. Just outside the cupola are two spacecraft including the Soyuz MS-09 crew craft and Northrop Grumman's Cygnus cargo craft with one of its cymbal-shaped UltraFlex solar arrays featuring prominently in the frame.
