I think the photos of this photo op should be made into posters or book covers.

If they turn out, I'm sure they will be.  In fact, they will probably be on a lot of "going away" posters that we all will get reminding us of what we used to able to do. 
Enjoying viewing the forum a little better now by filtering certain users.

Just spent the past half hour getting caught up with the pics and video of the 'Soyuz flyabout' and I have to say it was AMAZING !!!!

Can't wait for the HD photos!  :)

Here's to a safe landing !!!!

16 minutes to module separation.

Entry Interface will occur roughly 23 minutes after the de-orbit burn. After 8 minutes of re-entry, the parachutes will deploy, and the crew will land in Kazakhstan 15 minutes after that, at 10:26 PM EDT / 2:26 AM GMT.
