STATION CREW MOVES RETURN CRAFT FOR FUTURE OPERATIONS
Expedition 24 Flight Engineers Fyodor Yurchikhin, Doug Wheelock and Shannon Walker relocated their Soyuz TMA-19 spacecraft on June 28 from the aft end of the Zvezda Service Module to the Rassvet module, which was installed in May. Yurchikhin manually docked the Soyuz to Rassvet at 3:38 p.m. EDT for the first-ever linkup to the module. The move opens the aft port of Zvezda for the arrival of a new unpiloted Russian Progress resupply craft with food, fuel and supplies on July 2.
