New Commander's Historic Role

Expedition 39 Commander Koichi Wakata of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency fielded questions from Japanese reporters during a NASA Television In-flight event March 13, just days after becoming the first Japanese commander of the International Space Station. Wakata will remain in orbit until mid-May with NASA Flight Engineer Rick Mastracchio and Russian crewmate and Soyuz commander Mikhail Tyurin.
