Sharipov has flown two missions and has logged over 422 hours in space, including 9 hours and 58 minutes of EVA. He served as a mission specialist on the crew of STS-89 (January 22-31, 1998), the eighth Shuttle-Mir docking mission during which the crew transferred more than 8,000 pounds of scientific equipment, logistical hardware and water from Space Shuttle Endeavour to Mir. In the fifth and last exchange of a U.S. astronaut, STS-89 delivered Andy Thomas to Mir and returned with David Wolf. Mission duration was 8 days, 19 hours and 47 seconds, traveling 3.6 million miles in 138 orbits of the Earth.

Sharipov was the Flight Engineer on the Expedition-10 mission to the International Space Station (ISS). Expedition-10 launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on October 13, 2004 aboard Soyuz and docked with the ISS on October 15, 2004. Following eight-days of joint operations and handover briefings, the Expedition-9 crew returned to earth aboard Soyuz. In his six month stay aboard the station, Sharipov performed numerous tasks and science experiments and two repair and installation space walks.
