ISS crew completes "Soyuz shuffle"
Posted: Sat, Feb 24, 2001, 9:59 AM ET (1459 GMT)
ISS after STS-98 mission The three-man crew of the International Space Station moved a Soyuz spacecraft from one docking port to another during a brief flight early Saturday. The Soyuz TM-31 spacecraft undocked from the aft port of the Zvezda module at 5:06 am EST (1006 GMT) and redocked to the nadir (Earth-facing) port on the Zarya module 31 minutes later. The brief flight was the first time the station was unoccupied since the Expedition One crew arrived at the station in early November. The maneuver frees up the Zvezda port for a new unpiloted Progress cargo module, scheduled to arrive at the station next week.
