If there is a delay on the Shuttle at any one point of this schedule, can soyuz or progress launches be changed accordingly without too much of a problem?

Hm… I think that Russian launches can be changed... Shuttles have advantage in ISS program because they have a set of flight restrictions (light launch, beta angle, docking on 3rd day, etc.)… Therefore, if  American experts will ask to postpone any Soyuz or Progress launch, Russian colleagues will try to execute (not without problems, of course!) this request...

The MCC-M’s expert has told me today that the unique ISS Expedition 11 crew’s spacewalk from Pirs is planned approximately on August 19... However, the date of its realization naturally depends on Discovery flight…

Shows how the Shuttle denotes a lot of what goes on with the ISS.

Today at 05:45 UTC ISS Expedition 11 Commander Sergey Krikalyov has surpassed Sergey Avdeyev's spaceflights duration record (747 days 14 hours 14 minutes 11 seconds)!!!

Congratulation and good luck, Sergey Konstantinovich!!! :)  :)  :)

By the way, in the end of sixth flight (October 11) Krikalyov will collect 804 days!!! :o  ;)

Does Valery Polyakov's 438 day record still stand? 

Interesting article on effects of long duration isolation: http://www.airspacemag.com/ASM/Mag/Index/1996/JJ/llda.html

I know what 144 days at sea feels like.  It's no fun.  I can only imagine space.

Well, Russia is offering the US use of the Soyuz for $65 million a pop, including a Russian pilot, and two vacant seats for US astronauts. But US law precludes the purchase of the vehicle, due to import restrictions. So maybe Congress can act! Would it be worthwhile to do this at least once before April 2006, if only to extend NASA's partnership with RosCosmos? Story:

Brazilian to fly on April [March – anik note] 2006 Soyuz
Jim Oberg

RIO-DE-JANEIRO, September 2 (RIA Novosti, Andrei Kurguzov) – Brazil's first astronaut, Colonel Marcos Pontes, will lift off to the International Space Station (ISS) in March-April 2006 [March 22, 2006 – anik note] onboard a Russian Soyuz [Soyuz TMA-8 – anik note] spacecraft, a senior official from the Federal Space Agency said Friday.
Viktor Remishevsky, the agency's deputy director, said agreement on the mission had been reached between officials of the Russian and Brazilian space agencies in the Brazilian capital.
"We have agreed that the flight will take place next spring, but now everything will depend on how soon the Brazilian parliament ratifies the agreement," Remishevsky said before adding that the figures involved in the contract were a commercial secret.
Remishevsky said there was little time to train the astronaut so the process would have to be accelerated. He added that the flight would take place if Pontes arrived in Russia before September 15.
The final agreement is to be signed before November 1, 2005.
"Brazil wants the first Brazilian space flight to happen next year, as it will be an important year for us," said Sergio Gaudenzi, the president of the Brazilian space agency.
Next year will be a hundred years since Brazilian Santos Dumont made a pioneer flight on a heavier-than-air machine.
Pontes has already undergone training at NASA's Johnson space center in Houston and obtained an astronaut certificate in 2000.
He will also receive training in Russia's Star City space training center.

3. My comments and explanatories, which based on yet not confirmed plan of ISS flight

a) aboard Discovery (STS-121) will be launched Thomas Reiter
b) aboard Soyuz TMA-8 will be launched Pavel Vinogradov, Daniel Tani and Marcos Pontes
c) aboard Soyuz TMA-7 will be landed Valery Tokarev, William McArthur and Marcos Pontes
d) aboard Discovery (STS-116) will be launched Sunita Williams
e) aboard Discovery (STS-116) will be landed Daniel Tani

Editor's note: This chart was part of a series of internal presentations made at NASA during June 2005 on the progress of the Exploration Systems Architecture Study. Note the substantial decrease in ISS capability that would result.

Isn't that site going to get into a lot of trouble for publishing something that has "for internal use only" on it?  :o
Let's go and explore space.
