ISS038-E-068899 (9 March 2014) --- The new commander of the current crew on the International Space Station (Expedition 39) and the Expedition 38/39 flight engineers exchange handshakes inside the Kibo laboratory. Their celebration may very well be a follow-up gesture following the transfer of command ceremony and a symbolic farewell to the Expedition 38 crew members (out of frame) who are on the eve of their departure from the orbital outpost. Expedition 39 Commander Koichi Wakata (center) of the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) is joined here by Flight Engineers Rick Mastracchio (right) of NASA and cosmonaut Mikhail Tyurin of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos).
