The Space Station is such a unique and remote and almost magical place… I will miss it. " After spending 196 days in space, Pesquet and Oleg Novitskiy of Roscosmos landed their spacecraft in Kazakhstan at approximately 10:10 a.m. EDT on June 2. Together, the crew pursued hundreds of experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science aboard humanity’s only orbiting laboratory. The International Space Station (@iss) is also the primary platform for technology development and testing in space enabling human and robotic exploration of destinations beyond low-Earth orbit, including Mars.
