The STS-135 crew consisted of Commander Christopher Ferguson, Pilot Douglas Hurley, Mission Specialists Sandra Magnus and Rex Walheim.
Now that the U.S. shuttle fleet is officially retired, Russia's Soyuz space vehicles are to take the bulk of crew rotation to the ISS until at least the middle of the decade. Russia has signed a number of contracts with NASA on the delivery of U.S. astronauts to the ISS until 2016.
