Two cosmonauts wished the world's first spacewalker a Happy Birthday during their own spacewalk this week. The rest of the crew is loading the SpaceX Dragon cargo craft with science for return to Earth on Monday.
NASA astronaut Nick Hague is exploring how space radiation damages DNA and how the cell repair mechanism works in microgravity.
A new science experiment will allow scientists to monitor carbon dioxide emission hotspots from space. Also the kidney cells experiment will examine how microgravity affects the health of the kidney.
