Oleg Novitsky, Russian cosmonaut (Russian): «The main thing is that we understand each other. It does not matter what language we speak. It's a mixture of French, English, Russian and German.»
Thomas Pesquet, European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut (Russian): «German?»
Oleg Novitsky, Russian cosmonaut (Russian): «Yes.»
Russian cosmonaut Oleg Novitsky and European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut... Еще Thomas Pesquet spoke to the press after «two periods of rehabilitation» following their part in Expedition 50/51 to the International Space Station (ISS), in Star City, Moscow Region, Friday.
Novitsky noted that «the crew underwent two periods of rehabilitation,» each of which he said «lasted 21 days.»
The Russian cosmonaut commended his crew members, saying they were «decent people and competent professionals, hence work is very nice. We are giving as much attention to experiments as in the first flight. We understand that people make big bets on us. They hope for some result and we need to show this result.»
Pesquet echoed Novitsky's sentiment, saying that there was no language barrier between them at the ISS, because he said, «I [speak] Russian, Oleg [speaks] English, a little French.» Novitsky noted that «the main thing is that we understand each other. It does not matter what language we speak. It's a mixture of French, English, Russian and German.»
The crews of Expedition 50/51 headed to the ISS aboard the Soyuz MS-03 on November 16 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Novitsky and Pesquet safely returned to Earth on June 2, 2017, after some 197 days spent at the station.
