Soyuz Move Sets Stage for Arrival of New Crew

Three International Space Station crew members took their Soyuz for a spin around the block Friday as they prepare for the extremely busy final week of Expedition 37.

Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin and Flight Engineers Karen Nyberg and Luca Parmitano undocked their Soyuz TMA-09M spacecraft from the Rassvet module on the Earth-facing side of the station at 4:33 a.m. EDT Friday.

Russian Soyuz Vehicle Relocates at the International Space Station

The Russian Soyuz TMA-09M spacecraft, with Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin of the Russian Federal Space Agency, NASA Flight Engineer Karen Nyberg and European Space Agency Flight Engineer Luca Parmitano aboard, changed parking spaces at the International Space Station Nov. 1. The crew undocked the vehicle from the Rassvet module on the Earth-facing side of the Russian segment of the complex and redocked it 20 minutes later at the aft port of the Zvezda Service Module. The maneuver opened the Rassvet port for the Nov. 7 arrival of three new crew members for station operations. Yurchikhin, Nyberg and Parmitano will depart the station in the Soyuz TMA-09M on Nov. 10, for a landing on Nov. 11 on the steppe of Kazakhstan.
