Expedition 28

Expedition 26 Commander Scott Kelly handed over command of the Station to cosmonaut Dmitry Kondratyev during a ceremony yesterday evening.

Kelly, Soyuz commander Alexander Kaleri and Russian flight engineer Oleg Skripochka will close the hatch and depart in their Soyuz TMA-01M spacecraft at 06:00 CET on Wednesday, 16 March.

The three Expedition 26 astronauts aim to land in northern Kazakhstan near the town of Arkalyk at 08:48 CET later that day.

The Expedition 27 crew of Paolo, new commander Dmitry Kondratyev and astronaut Cady Coleman will welcome fresh crewmembers in early April: Russian cosmonauts Alexander Samokutyaev and Andrey Borisenko, and NASA flight engineer Ron Garan.

Russia’s Roscosmos space agency announced today that the launch of the new trio has been delayed from 30 March owing to technical checks required on their Soyuz TMA-21 spacecraft.

They will remain aboard the Station for about six months as Expedition 28.
