ISS Crew Return Tonight

Sun Oct 24, 2004 3:51 am

The ISS and Soyuz capsule will be seperating tonight at 2108, with the hatches already closed as I type this.
Nasa TV will provide coverage from 2030 GMT and the landing of the Soyuz capsule is expected in Kazahkstan (Think thats spelt right) at 0036 GMT.
Hope everything goes ok as im sure it will.
Its not the fall that kills u, its the sudden stop at the end..

Just to say the guys are "back home" safely and on-target..
The re-entry occurred as the ISS was passing overhead, and there was a excellent view downwards of the capsule burning up upon re-entry.

Yeah I saw the reentry too. I'd guess though that what we saw was one of the jettisoned modules burning up and not the reentry module. I saw chunks coming off...
