Submitted by Arthur N1ORC - Amsat A/C #31468

As the launch time for the next Station crew draws near, the current 
crew spent the day packing items for the journey back to Earth and 
preparing the Station for the arrival of its next residents.

On Thursday at 8:46 p.m. EDT, Expedition 11 Commander Sergei Krikalev 
and Flight Engineer and NASA ISS Science Officer John Phillips will 
launch from Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan, aboard a Soyuz rocket for 
their 6-month stay on the Station. Their spacecraft is scheduled to dock 
with the Station on Saturday at 8:19 p.m. EDT. Visiting crew member and 
European Space Agency Astronaut Roberto Vittori will ride with 
Expedition 11 and stay on the orbiting complex for eight days before 
returning home with Expedition 10. Live coverage of the launch will be 
available on NASA TV 
<http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/MM_NTV_Web.html> beginning at 
8:00 p.m. EDT.

Aboard the Station, Expedition 10 Commander Leroy Chiao and Flight 
Engineer Salizhan Sharipov continued maintenance activities, including 
preparing and packing items for the return to Earth. Both crewmembers 
also completed their usual 2.5 hour exercise regimen.
