STS-102 logo The complete Expedition Two crew is now aboard the International Space Station after astronaut Susan Helms moved aboard the station early Wednesday. Helms officially transferred from the shuttle Discovery to the station at 1 am EST (0600 GMT) when she moved her custom-fitted seat liner into the Soyuz module docked to the station. She joins Expedition Two commander Yuri Usachev, who moved aboard Saturday, and astronaut James Voss, who moved into the station Monday. Helms replaced Expedition One commander Bill Shepherd, who moved into the shuttle but will officially remain in command of the station until the hatches between the shuttle and station close on Saturday. In the meantime the shuttle and station crews will work to move the remaining supplies and equipment from the Leonardo cargo carrier into the station, and then move 725 kg of trash into the Italian-built module, which will then be undocked to the station and returned to Earth on the shuttle.
