ISS crew moves Soyuz
Posted: Tue, Jul 19, 2005, 9:24 PM ET (0124 GMT)
ISS illustration (NASA) The crew of the International Space Station took a brief flight in their Soyuz spacecraft Tuesday, moving the vehicle from one docking port to another on the station. Sergei Krikalev and John Phillips spent about 30 minutes away from the ISS, flying the Soyuz TMA-6 spacecraft from docking port on the Pirs airlock module to one on the Zarya module, completing the redocking at 7:08 am EDT (1108 GMT). The maneuver was delayed because of a sensor glitch that indicated that a hatch was not properly closed. Moving the Soyuz frees up the Pirs airlock for an EVA by the ISS crew scheduled for next month.
