Brazil's First Astronaut, Next ISS Crew to Launch Today

Abstract:
The joint space station crews will spend about eight days transferring control of the ISS over to the Expedition 13 astronauts. During that time, (Brazilian Air Force Col. Marcos) Pontes – who began training for a NASA shuttle flight in 1998 only to secure an ISS-bound seat aboard a Soyuz last year – will conduct a series of nanotechnology studies, as well as experiments for students in his native country as part of his Centennial Mission.
