Space Station Photos: Expedition 50 Astronauts in Action

Space Tug Experiments

NASA/Johnson

Inside the Japanese Experiment Module, Expedition 50 crewmembers Thomas Pesquet and Shane Kimbrough conduct SPHERES Tether experiments designed to study how tether-captured objects behave.

More Tug Experiments

NASA's Shane Kimbrough preps for another round of SPHERES Tether experiments aboard the ISS.

Gas and Liquid Experiments

NASA/Johnson

The Microgravity Science Glovebox is where astronauts test how gases and liquids behave inside a column of fixed porous material. NASA's Peggy Whitson adds more hardware to the PBRE for further study.

Keeping Healthy

NASA/Johnson

Cycling looks a bit different aboard the ISS. NASA's Shane Kimbrough rides the Cycle Ergometer with CEVIS. Crewmembers usually exercise about two hours a day to maintain physical health aboard the International Space Station.

Space and Humans

NASA/Johnson

Part of the ongoing MARES experiment, ESA's Thomas Pesquet and Roscosmos's Sergey Ryzhikov run an experiment into the effects of microgravity on the human musculatory system

First Timer

NASA/Johnson

ESA's Thomas Pesquet is a flight engineer for Expedition 50 on his first flight to space. Here he's making adjustments inside the Harmony module on the ISS.

Kimbrough Gives a Haircut

ESA/NASA

NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough gives Russian cosmonaut Oleg Novitskiy a haircut aboard the International Space Station on Dec. 17, 2016. The trimmers are connected to a vacuum that prevents the severed hairs from floating around the station.

Experience Galore

NASA/Johnson

NASA's Peggy Whitson garnered the title of oldest woman in space, ad first woman to command the station twice with her third trip to the Space Station. Here she floats in the Unity module.

Fluid Shifts Experiment
