On the ISS, Expedition Four Commander Yury Onufrienko and Flight Engineers Carl Walz and Dan Bursch spent time on Wednesday preparing for the arrival of the Soyuz 4 Taxi Flight crew. Commander Yuri Gidzenko, Flight Engineer Roberto Vittori and 'afronaut' Mark Shuttleworth are scheduled to arrive at the International Space Station Saturday April 27, to begin an eight-day stay at the orbital outpost. Docking is set for 07.57 GMT with the hatch opening only at about 09.20 GMT after flight checks have been done and a light meal eaten. All this of course in the very comfortable ' knees-under-ears position'.

Landing Countdown to 05:51 05 May
