This morning, the ISS crew led by ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst are conducting the final ingress activities. After shutting down then removing the scrubbing equipment, the astronauts can spend a bit of time exploring this new, integral addition to the ISS working space and its massive cargo stores! Note that Alex is wearing a mask (and cool space goggles!), a final safety precaution to avoid breathing any final bits of debris left in the atmosphere.
