The International Space Station will reach an interesting point in its history around the 20th anniversary of continuous human occupation due to the commercial crew program.

In October 2020 (just before the anniversary on Nov. 2), NASA’s two-time space veteran Chris Cassidy will leave the orbiting complex in a Russian Soyuz with rookie Russian cosmonauts Nikolai Tikhonov and Andrei Babkin. The trio, who make up the Expedition 62/63 crew, is expected to fly up in April and remain about five months, although dates are always subject to complex scheduling. Their journey will be one of the last in the current pattern of space station operations.
