ISS Astronauts Prepare for Launch and Landing

(Marcos Pontes, Brazil's first astronaut) will make history as Brazilís first astronaut to fly, and has been training for his flight since 1998. He will spend about eight days aboard the ISS conducting nanotechnology experiments before returning to Earth with the Expedition 12 crew, he has said.
