Astro Tingle aka AstroMaker, Astro Shkaplerov and Astro Kanai will join the ISS to complement to six joining Expedition 54's Commander Alexander Misurkin of Russia along with his crewmates Mark Vande Hei and Joe Acaba of  Nasa.  The Astros will spend more than four months conducting approximately two hundred and fifty science investigations in fields such as biology, technology development, Earth science, human research and physical sciences.
 

Vande Hei, Acaba and Misurkin are scheduled to remain aboard the station until February 2018, and Tingle, Shkaplerov and Kanai are expected to return to Earth in April.

This crew continues the long-term increase in crew size on the U.S. segment from three to four, allowing NASA to maximise time dedicated to research on the space station.

Nasa stated, " it over more than seventeen years that humans had life and worked consecutively aboard at the ISS, advancing scientific Knowledge and demonstrating new technologies, making the breakthroughs in technologies test not possible on earth. More than two hundred people from eighteen countries have visited the unique microgravity Lab that has hosted twenty one thousand of research investigations from the researcher in more than 95 countries.
