Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Satoshi Furukawa may not be Superman, but in the microgravity of space, he can fly (well, almost). Actually, Furukawa is the flight engineer for Expedition 28 on the International Space Station.

As part of the planned duties for this mission, the station crew continue installing infrastructure upgrades to the station’s command and control computers and its communications systems. The station crew also assisted the STS-134 shuttle mission and continue preparations for the arrival of STS-135, the final mission of the Space Shuttle Program.
