STS-105: Leonardo attached to ISS The old and new International Space Station crews swapped placed Monday while shuttle astronauts attached a cargo module to the station. The Expedition Three crew of Frank Culbertson, Vladimir Dezhurov, and Mikhail Tyurin officially moved into the station Monday when they installed their custom-fit seat liners into the Soyuz spacecraft docked with the station, replacing those of the Expedition Two crew of Yuri Usachev, Susan Helms, and James Voss. The official transfer of command from Usachev to Culbertson is not scheduled until August 20, the day the shuttle undocks from the station. Meanwhile, the shuttle Discovery's robot arm lifted the Leonardo cargo module out of the cargo bay and attached it to a docking port on the station's Unity module. The module carries over three tons of supplies and equipment for the station.
