Pack Your Bags, We're Going Home!
They're here! Commander Leroy Chiao and Cosmonaut Salizhan
Sharipov watched as their replacements arrived at about 10:20 p.m.
EDT Saturday. They have been preparing by cleaning the space
station and starting to pack away their things for their trip
The Soyuz spaceship carried the 11th Internation Space Station
crew, Cosmonaut Sergie Krikalev and Astronaut John Phillips. The
spacecraft automatically docked without a problem, although
Krikalev was standing by.
Also on board is an
Italian, European Space Agency Astronaut Roberto Vittori. He will
stay on the station for about eight days conducting experiments
before returning home with Chiao and Sharipov. They will leave the
station on April 24th in the Soyuz that brought them to the
station, with a planned landing at 6:08 p.m. EDT in Kazakhstan.
The new crew is scheduled to greet the space shuttle when it
returns to the ISS.
