Ivanishin, along with fellow cosmonaut Ivan Vagner and NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy, won’t have to deal with these problems for much longer, as they’re set to return to Earth this week. The trio will undock from the Poisk module at 7:32 p.m. EDT on Thursday and arrive at a landing site in Kazakhstan at 10:55 p.m. EDT.

The International Space Station, it’s fair to say, is starting to show its age (the orbital outpost dates back to 1998). When the Russian oxygen supply system failed last week, veteran Russian cosmonaut Gennady Padalka said all Russian modules are “exhausted” and that they rely on expired equipment in dire need of replacement, as RIA Novosti reported. Given all that’s been going on in the ISS lately, he’s probably not wrong.
