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