NASA astronauts Shane Kimbrough and Megan McArthur, JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) astronaut Akihiko Hoshide, and ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut Thomas Pesquet returned to Earth in November 2021 after spending 198 days aboard the microgravity laboratory, conducting science and maintenance activities, scientific investigations, and technology demonstrations.

Crew-2 completed the agency's second crew rotation mission to the space station as part of the agency's Commercial Crew Program. The mission set a record for the longest spaceflight by a U.S. crewed spacecraft. The international crew spent 199 days in orbit. The Crew-2 astronauts also served as part of space station Expedition 65/66.

The media opportunity will take place in the Webb Auditorium at NASA Headquarters in the Mary W. Jackson building, 300 E. Street SW in Washington. Media interested in participating must RSVP by 5 p.m. on Monday, June 6 to: joshua.a.finch@nasa.gov.
