Expedition 36 Trio Says Farewell, Closes Hatches


www.nasa.gov said:

Expedition 36 crew members Pavel Vinogradov, Chris Cassidy and Alexander Misurkin have said farewell to their crewmates. They closed the hatches between the International Space Station and the Soyuz TMA-08M spacecraft at 4:19 p.m. EDT. They are conducting leak checks and putting on their Sokol pressure suits.

The day before, Vinogradov handed over control of the station to Flight Engineer Fyodor Yurchikhin in a traditional Change of Command Ceremony in the Zvezda service module. Yurchikhin will take over command and officially lead Expedition 37 when Expedition 36 undocks at 7:35 p.m. They are scheduled for a Kazakhstan landing at 10:58 p.m. (8:58 a.m. Wednesday Kazakhstan time).

166 days in a cramped pressurized tube surrounded by a radiation filled vaccum,my inner claustrophobe's worst nightmare... but my inner explorers earnest hope.

I reject your reality, and substitute my own! Mostly because yours is boring as hell.

It's not exactly cramped:

Quote

The complex now has more livable room than a conventional five-bedroom house, and has two bathrooms, a gymnasium and a 360-degree bay window.

ISS has an internal pressurized volume of 32,333 cubic feet, or equal that of a Boeing 747.

And, as it orbits below the Van Allen Belts, it's not surrounded by dangerous levels of radiation either.

I don't suppose that there are many submariners that wouldn't be envious of the conditions on board.

I'm 6' 4", everything is cramped to me! :)
