*Managers Evaluating Proposal to Delay Progress Undocking*

Three months into their six-month mission aboard the International Space 
Station, the Expedition 12 crewmembers continue to work on science 
experiments and station maintenance activities. Thursday, the crew 
conducted a 10-minute ham radio session with students in Sanderson, Texas.

Station managers are evaluating a proposal from Russian engineers to 
delay the undocking of the ISS Progress 19 cargo craft scheduled for 
Dec. 20. Regardless of the outcome of that decision, the launch of the 
ISS Progress 20 cargo craft will still take place on Dec. 21 and dock 
with the station on Dec. 23. The new Progress will bring supplies of 
food, water, fuel and air to the station as well as holiday gifts for 
the crew.
