The ISS crew successfully returned to Earth

Although the space agency says it accepts Roscosmos' findings that the hole may have been made from the inside - and even possibly by drilling - they don't believe American astronauts worked to undermine worldwide cooperation in space by killing everyone on board the ISS.

Both Feustel and Arnold participated in dozens of educational downlink events while in space, as part of NASA's Year of Education on Station, reaching more than 2 lakh students in 29 states, the statement said.

Alexander Gerst of ESA (European Space Agency) accepted control of the orbital lab today from NASA astronaut and Expedition 56 Commander Drew Feustel.

A Purdue University graduate is closing out his stint aboard the International Space Station in unique fashion.

A Russian scientist who was to join the crew was pulled from the mission because the instruments he has been trained to use have been pushed back to a later date.

Members of the worldwide crew of a manned transportation spacecraft Roscosmos cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev, NASA astronauts Andrew Feustel and Richard Arnold have become the members of the 56 expedition.

Kavanaugh: I said things I ‘should not have said’ during Senate testimony
The judiciary committee voted to advance Kavanaugh's nomination to the full Senate, which is expected to attempt a vote Friday. White House spokesman Raj Shah said the Trump administration was "fully confident" Kavanaugh had the necessary support.

Artemyev conducted one spacewalk together with a fellow Russian.

"Russian media recently reported that General Director Rogozin said the hole was not a manufacturing defect". He is set to return to Earth this week.

NASA said a spacewalk was being tentatively planned for November to gather more information.

The ISS is one of the few areas of tight Russia-US cooperation that had until now remained unaffected by the slump in ties, including after Washington's sanctions against Russia over Ukraine and other crises. Crew members evacuated from the lander.

Their journey that began with a blastoff from Baikonur in March was particularly poignant for Arnold, who during his debut mission in 2009 helped build the space station he has now spent 197 days living in.
