B-Roll Feed Of Exp 44 Flight Engineer Kjell Lindgren
B-Roll of NASA Astronaut Kjell Lindgren training for his launch to the International Space station aboard a Soyuz spacecraft on July 22 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Lindgren hails from the Midwest but spent most of his childhood in England. Board certified in emergency and aerospace medicine, Lindgren is a graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs and Colorado State University in Fort Collins. Lindgren received his medical degree from the University of Colorado and began working as a flight surgeon at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston in 2007 before his selection to the astronaut corps in 2009. His space station mission team will include cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) and Kimiya Yui of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). They will join the Expedition 44 crew of NASA astronaut Scott Kelly and Roscosmos cosmonauts Mikhail Kornienko and Gennady Padalka, who launched to the station in March, marking the start of a one-year mission for Kelly and Kornienko. Together the six crew members will continue the several hundred experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science currently underway and scheduled to take place aboard humanity’s only orbiting laboratory. Lindgren is scheduled to return to Earth with crew members Kononenko and Yui in late December.
