I was just checking out the status of the International Space Station and I noticed that another object was also in the screen orbiting the earth. It is the Russian capsule, the SOYUZ capsle. I was wondering, Is this capsle carrying the ISS crew back home, making the station unoccupied? Is it a supply shipment TO the Crew??? I saw it and began to wonder, and I know you Guys always have something to say: Here's the link

They are American Ed Lu and Yuri Malenchenko. They will stay 6 months and then be relieved by another caretaker crew.

FYI: The American crew members returning on the Soyuz will be the first Americans to experience a hard capsule landing. All US space capsules dropped down into water. Should be quite the experience.

If any of you have the NASA channel [ I have it on ch 213 on Dish Sattelite] they will be covering docking tonight and landing of returning crew on May 3.

Should be cramped having 3 in that Soyuz, though it's been done many times.
Replacing 3 crew with 2 on the ISS will cut down on consumables allowing the station to remain crewed and active until the Shuttle can get flying again.
