Expedition 14 Preps for Trip Home



SUBMITTED BY ARTHUR N1ORC - AMSAT A/C #31468

*Expedition 14 Preps for Trip Home*

Expedition 14 Commander Michael Lopez-Alegria, Flight Engineer Mikhail 
Tyurin and Spaceflight Participant Charles Simonyi are making 
preparations for their trip home. Members of both Expedition 14 and 
Expedition 15 are continuing crew rotation and handover activities, as 
well as prepacking hardware for return and disposal in the Soyuz TMA-9 
spacecraft.

The returning crew is scheduled to leave the station early Saturday and 
will land northeast of Arkalyk, which is southeast of the usual landing 
site in Kazakhstan. The landing was delayed a day and moved farther 
south because wet ground at the initial site precluded helicopter 
operations there.

Flight Engineer Sunita Williams is now a member of Expedition 15 and is 
scheduled to return with the STS-118 shuttle crew.
