Another Day, Another 16 Orbits For Expedition 14 Crew

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.
