Half of ISS Crew Headed Home Tonight

Three of the six crew members aboard the International Space Station (ISS) will head home tonight. Russians Alexander Skvortsov and Mikhail Kornienko and American Tracy Caldwell Dyson are scheduled to undock from the ISS at 9:35 pm EDT. Landing is expected at 12:55 am EDT in Kazakhstan.

NASA TV will cover the action live, as will Spaceflightnow.com.

That will leave three crew aboard the space station: Americans Doug Wheelock and Shannon Walker, and Russian Fyodor Yurchikhin. They are due to be joined by Russians Alexander Kaleri and Oleg Skripochka and American Scott Kelly, whose Soyuz spacecraft is set to launch on October 7. They will dock with ISS two days later.
