The Progress 25 (P25) cargo craft undocked from the Zvezda service 
module’s aft port Tuesday night at 8:37 EDT. Russian scientists will 
test the Progress’ thrusters and propellant usage before it deorbits and 
burns up in the Earth’s atmosphere on Tuesday, Sept. 25.

On Thursday Sept. 27, the Expedition 15 crew members will enter their 
Soyuz TMA-10 spacecraft, undock from Zarya’s nadir, or earth-facing, 
port and relocate to Zvezda’s aft port. On Oct. 12 Expedition 16 will 
arrive at the International Space Station in the Soyuz TMA-11 spacecraft 
for a crew swap.

Meanwhile, Expedition 15 Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin and flight 
engineers Oleg Kotov and Clay Anderson continue maintenance on the 
Internal Thermal Control System loops and will install a new valve in 
the Destiny lab's humidity control system.
