11 and 12 crews, along with Spaceflight Participant Greg Olsen  answered 
questions from the media during a live interview Tuesday.

With less than a week remaining in its time aboard the space station, 
the Expedition 11 crew is busy handing over operations to the Expedition 
12 crew.

Commander Sergei Krikalev and Flight Engineer and NASA ISS Science 
Officer John Phillips are briefing the new crew about vehicle 
maintenance and science operations.

Expedition 12 Commander Bill McArthur and Flight Engineer Valery Tokarev 
arrived in a Soyuz TMA spacecraft Monday to begin their six-month stay 
in space. With them was American Greg Olsen, the third private citizen 
in space, flying under a contract with the Russian Federal Space Agency.

Olsen will spend about eight days on the station before returning to 
Earth with the Expedition 11 crew. Their Soyuz TMA spacecraft will 
undock from the station Monday at 5:45 p.m. EDT and land in Kazakhstan 
at 9:10 p.m.
