Expedition 39 was the 39th expedition to the International Space Station. It marked the first time the ISS had been under command of a Japanese astronaut, space veteran Koichi Wakata. After Expedition 21 in 2009 and Expedition 35 in 2013, it was only the third time an ISS-crew is led neither by a NASA nor a RSA crew member.

During Expedition 39, Astronauts Mastracchio and Swanson installed the "Veggie" project on the International Space Station.[1]
