View Full Version : Discussion: Expedition 7 Returns Safely to Earth

SUMMARY: The crew of Expedition 7 returned safely to Earth Monday afternoon after spending six months in orbit on the International Space Station. Fortunately their Soyuz didn't run into the same computer problems as the previous one, so they landed roughly on target in the steppes of Kazakhstan. Doctors were on hand in case there was a problem, but they gave Ed Lu, Yuri Malenchenko, and Pedro Duque a clean bill of health. Expedition 8, Michael Foale and Alexander Kaleri will now take over command of the station for the next six months.

What were they doing in the 3 hours between boarding the Soyuz and undocking?
