ISS036-E-004758 (29 May 2013) --- European Space Agency astronaut Luca Parmitano, Expedition 36 flight engineer, translates from the Rassvet Mini-Research Module (MRM1) into the Zarya transfer compartment on the International Space Station after arriving at the orbital outpost on May 29. Parmitano and two other flight engineers -- cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin of Russia's Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) and NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg --were launched earlier in the day aboard a Soyuz TMA-09M spacecraft from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The trio is slated for a 5 1/2 month stay aboard the station.
