It's never too early to think about new Expeditions! At 1pm CST Serena Auñón-Chancellor and Alexander Gerst of ESA, and Sergey Prokopyev of Roscosmos will all take part in a news conference at the Johnson Space Center. They will go to the International Space Station in June.

The interview will be broadcast live on both NASA-TVs and rebroadcast on both NASA-TVs at 4pm CST and 8pm CST.

Tomorrow at 8am CDT, NASA-TV will broadcast an ISS communication event with the European Space Agency with German President Frank-Walter Steinmaier and ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst. The public channel will have the interpretation; the media channel will have the native language.

It's a "go" for the Konoutori 7 launch! The seventh cargo mission from Japan will lift off from Earth at 6:32pm CDT on Monday. HRPO will be open from 5:30pm to 7pm and will provide drinks for anyone who would like to stop and watch the launch and get additional information about HRPO programs. Coincidentally, this month's Baton Rouge Astronomical Society meeting takes place right after at 7pm; the meeting is open to the public as well.
