Is there a reason why Soyuz TMA-09 will be leaving ISS after Souz TMA-11M arrives, thereby having 9 crew members on board, albeit only a few days?
June 11 - Progress M-19M undocking (from Zvezda) Do we have a time on this?
Before the ATV-4 arrives at the station, the Russian ISS Progress 51 cargo spacecraft will undock from the Zvezda port at 9:53 a.m., Tuesday, June 11. NASA TV coverage of the undocking will begin at 9:30 a.m.
Do we have a time on this?
Any reason given for the Nauka delay?

Energia: December 2013? No problems! But give me a money for fast preparation.Roskosmos: No money! Prepare MLM for launch in 2013!
MORE time? MORE money?I thought the MLM was ALREADY years overdue. Let's hope it's a world-class research facility and lives up to expectations, or that will be a real embarrassment for Russia.
Today's ISS reboost by ATV-4 was successfully completed just before 07:45 CEST. The firing of Albert Einstein's Orbital Control System (OCS) engines No. 2 and 4 started at 07:35 CEST, lasted slighty less than 10 minutes and resulted in a 'delta-v' (change in Station velocity) of 1.45 m/sec. The manoeuvre consumed 199 kg of propellant.
