International Space Station crewmembers this week continued research and maintenance activities and prepared for arrival of the next Progress cargo craft.
On Wednesday, Station managers reviewed preparations for the upcoming launch of the unpiloted Russian ISS Progress 16 resupply ship from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. They confirmed that work is progressing well for the scheduled liftoff at 4:19 p.m. CST Dec. 23.
our fellow member Scott WA6LIE reports a nice voice contact with Leroy Chiao onboard ISS.
Let's give Leroy a warm welcome to the Amateur Radio, and please let him know about this website...
