I was watching NASA TV last week in which Steve Swanson, Oleg Artemyev, and Alexander Skvortsov had a press conference on their upcoming March Expedition 39/40 flight. Swanson made mention that the crew would be going into quarantine shortly.
Does the crew conduct the quarantine in Houston or in Russia? If in Russia, where and for how long does a quarantine period last?
