Landing Delayed One Day Due To Soft Ground
It looks like the 14th crew of the International Space Station
will spend one more day in space.
NASA announced Wednesday that Commander Michael Lopez-Alegria
and Flight Engineer Mikhail Tyurin, along with Spaceflight
Participant Charles Simonyi, will land at 8:30 am EDT Saturday,
April 21 in Kazakhstan.
The return of the Soyuz spacecraft was delayed a day, and the
landing site was moved farther south.
The Russian Federal Space Agency, Roscosmos, made the decisions
to avoid wet conditions at the original landing site that could
have interfered with recovery helicopter operations.
The crew will now land northeast of Arkalyk, which is southeast
of the usual landing site in Kazakhstan.
