The change comes a month after the NASA astronaut received command from a Russian colleague.
Sputnik is live with a broadcast of NASA commander Thomas Marshburn handing command of the International Space Station to Roscosmos cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev before departing from the station.
Changing command is a regular procedure at the ISS. Marshburn is handing over command to Artemyev one month after receiving it from his Russian colleague Anton Shkaplerov.
Earlier on Tuesday, NASA administrator Bill Nelson said that cooperation on the ISS programme is impossible without both the US and Russia.
