The New Crew Is About to Come to the ISS

A carrier rocket “Soyuz-FG” was launched from Baikonur cosmodrome with a manned spacecraft “Soyuz TMA-06M” and the new ISS crew. Cosmonauts Oleg Novitsky (Roscosmos), Eugene Tarelkin (Roscosmos) and Kevin Ford (NASA) went to the near-Earth orbit. The docking of the new Russian “Soyuz” with the ISS should happen today, on October, 25th.

For the Russians Novitsky and Tarelkin it’s the first flight into space, while Ford is flying for the second time.

The flight of the new crew at the station is planned to last 148 days. They have to unload four transport ships “Progress” and one European truck ATV-4. The crew of the 33rd expedition is not planned to have spacewalks.

      • Mmmm… Tiger. I don’t be sure.
        I remember one moment in the 14 episode of season 2 (“The Financial Permability”). When Leonard, Sheldon, Howard and Raj visited Kurt, for demand him the money than he owes to Penny, Howard β€”afraidβ€” made the cross sign himself.

        It’s one serial whit a lot of little funny details like this.

  1. If some stranger shoves a painted wooden object up my nose and then lashes me with a wet wand, I’ll show him some sorcery too, like magically making his teeth disappear.

        • Then again maybe it’s just water like any other. (sarcasm)

          It’s been said that religion is a crutch for weak minded people. I agree. But if it makes you feel any better go ahead and sprinkle a little “holy water” around. It won’t help anything other then your mindset, but it won’t hurt anything either. It’s just water. πŸ˜‰
