ISS Crewmember Reflects on the Science Accomplished Aboard the Station 

Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 47 Flight Engineer Tim Peake of the European Space Agency discussed life and research on the orbital outpost during an in-flight interview on May 17 with the Federation Aeronautique Internationale gathered in Leicester, England. The space station passed a milestone on May 16, crossing the Equator at 2:10 a.m. EDT to begin the 100,000th orbit of its lifetime since its first component was launched on Nov. 20, 1998. Peake and station Commander Tim Kopra of NASA are scheduled to return to Earth aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft on June 18 to complete a six-month mission.
