Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 55 mission commander Anton Shkaplerov of the Russian Space Agency handed over command on Sunday to NASA astronaut, and Michigan native, Andrew J. Feustel (who's been taking a lot of photos of racetracks from space lately). Then Anton departed for Earth. So, now a Michigander is in control of space.

It's good to be the king.

According to MLive.com, tomorrow morning, three more astronauts will launch and head to the space station, aboard Soyuz MS-09. The launch is scheduled at 7:12 AM. You can watch the launch on NASA's website or any of it's social media sites. Here's the story.
