The first European woman to command the International Space Station

A Russian cosmonaut said “the war will end everywhere” while handing over command of the space station Wednesday (September 28) to Samantha Christofority, now the first European woman in charge of the orbiting laboratory.

The entirety of the current Expedition 67 mission to the International Space Station (ISS) occurred during the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which began in February. Media reports in recent days indicate that Russia is now turning to recruiting soldiers amid ongoing Ukrainian resistance.
