Expedition 12 and McArthur break school contact records

This past week had three school contacts on Cmdr. Bill McArthur's schedule,
including two contacts on Tuesday on subsequent orbits. By the end of the
last contact, Bill had made his 24th successful contact. That contact breaks
the previous record of 23 set by Leroy Chiao during Expedition 10. 

The contact record for an expedition was also broken this week and stands at
25 since Valery Tokarev also had a school contact with students in Russia
earlier in the expedition.

With several weeks still left for Expedition 12, the final records have yet
to be established.

Congratulations to Bill and Valery!
