Expedition Report

With the undocking of Soyuz MS-24 on April 06, 2024 at 03:54:58 UTC the Expedition 70 concluded the the new Expedition 71 began.

On April 25, 2024 Oleg Kononenko and Nikolai Chub performed the first spacewalk in this expedition (4h 36m). Main tasks were to complete the deployment of one panel on a synthetic radar system on the Nauka module. The two cosmonauts also installed equipment and experiments on the Poisk module to analyze the level of corrosion on station surfaces and modules.

Following commands from ground controllers at SpaceX in Hawthorne, California, Dragon SpX-30 or CRS-30 undocked on April 28 2024 at 17:10 UTC from the forward port of the station's Harmony module and fired its thrusters to move a safe distance away from the station.
After re-entering Earth's atmosphere, the spacecraft made a parachute-assisted splashdown off the coast of Florida at 04:38 UTC on April 30, 2024.

In preparation for the arrival of NASA's Boeing Crew Flight Test, four crew members aboard the International Space Station relocated the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft to a different docking port, on May 02, 2024, to make way for Boeing's Starliner spacecraft.
Matthew Dominick, Michael Barratt, and Jeanette Epps, as well as Roscosmos cosmonaut Aleksandr Grebyonkin, undocked from the forward-facing port of the station's Harmony module at 12:57 UTC. The spacecraft then autonomously docked with the module's space-facing port at 13:46 UTC.
The relocation, supported by flight controllers at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston and SpaceX in Hawthorne, California, freed up Harmony's forward-facing port for the docking of the Starliner Starliner spacecraft for its first flight with astronauts in May. Starliner will autonomously dock to the forward-facing port of the Harmony module, delivering Barry Wilmore and Sunita Williams to the space station.
