In addition, according to the International Space Station’s flight program, during the expedition were performed such works as maintaining cargo spacecraft "Progress M-24M", "Progress M-25M", "Progress M-26M", European cargo ship ATV-5 «Georges Lemaitre »; preparation for return to Earth of three members of the crew of ISS-40/41 at TPK" Soyuz TMA-13M "; participation in operations management docking TPK "Soyuz TMA-15M" with the ISS to a small research module" Rassvet "(MRM1 ), as well as a spacewalk by the Russian program.
