Expedition Report

ISS Expedition 70 began with the undocking of Russian spacecraft Soyuz MS-23 on September 27, 2023 at 07:54:21 UTC.
The landing crew consisted of Sergei Prokopyev, Dmitri Petelin and Frank Rubio. Three-and-a-half-hours later the crew landed safely in Kazakhstan. So, the new Expedition 70 consisted of ISS Commander Andreas Mogensen, Jasmin Moghbeli, Satoshi Furukawa, Konstantin Borisov, Oleg Kononenko, Nikolai Chub and Loral O'Hara.

The first Russian spacewalk in Expedition 70 was performed by Oleg Kononenko and Nikolai Chub on October 25, 2023 (7h 41m). In addition to the previously planned tasks, including installing a radar on the Nauka module to observe the Earth's surface and launching the student nanosatellite Parus-MGTU to test the technology for deploying a solar sail. In addition the cosmonauts had to conduct inspections and photograph leak sites at an additional radiant heat exchanger in the Nauka module so that specialists on Earth can find out the reasons for the occurrence of the occurrence.

On November 01, 2023 Jasmin Moghbeli and Loral O'Hara performed the second spacewalk (6h 42m). They replaced one of twelve Trundle Bearing Assemblies on the port truss Solar Alpha Rotary Joint (SARJ). The bearings enable the station's solar arrays to rotate properly to track the sun as the station orbits the Earth.

SpaceX's 29th Commercial Resupply Services mission launched on November 10, 2023 at 01:28:14 UTC on a Falcon 9 rocket from Launch Complex 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Dragon SpX-29 or CRS-29 carried more than 6,500 pounds (2,948 kg) research, logistics and hardware for the Expeditions 70 and 71.
SpaceX's Dragon spacecraft will deliver new science investigations, food, supplies, and equipment to the international crew, including NASA's AWE (Atmospheric Waves Experiment), which studies atmospheric gravity waves to understand the flow of energy through Earth's upper atmosphere and space.
The spacecraft also delivered NASA's ILLUMA-T (Integrated Laser Communications Relay Demonstration Low-Earth-Orbit User Modem and Amplifier Terminal), which aims to test high data rate laser communications from the space station to Earth via the agency's LCRD (Laser Communications Relay Demonstration). Together, ILLUMA-T and LCRD will complete NASA's first two-way, end-to-end laser communications relay system.
Arrival at the station was on November 11, 2023 at 10:07 UTC. The SpaceX Dragon spacecraft docked autonomously to the station's zenith port of the Harmony module. The spacecraft is expected to spend about a month attached to the orbiting outpost before it returns to Earth with research and return cargo, splashing down off the coast of Florida.

Progress MS-23 filled with 'junk' and used-up equipment undocked from the International Space Station on November 29, 2023 at 07:55:25 UTC. The unmanned transporter re-entered the atmosphere a few hours later and burned up over the South Pacific.
