Crew Completes Preparations for Soyuz Move

www.nasa.gov said:

On the eve of a vehicle relocation to make way for the arrival of a third Soyuz at the International Space Station, the Expedition 37 crew supported a variety of science experiments, reviewed Soyuz procedures and prepared for the return home of three crew members.

Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin and Flight Engineer Luca Parmitano spent their Thursday morning conducting some on board training to prepare to move their Soyuz TMA-09M spacecraft from the Rassvet module to the aft port of the Zvezda service module. Along with Flight Engineer Karen Nyberg, they will undock their spacecraft at 4:34 a.m. EDT Friday for the planned 24-minute hop. NASA Television will provide live coverage of the relocation beginning at 4 a.m
