Glitch in Space

Docked Russian capsules on ISS.

Wooops... that's not supposed to happen.

Expedition 24 crewmembers Skvorstov, Caldwell-Dyson, and Kornienko must have been surprised when their attempt to undock from ISS failed. Apparently the TMA-18 capsule failed to disengage the hooks and latches at the docking port. The crew will therefore spend another day at the station while the glitches are worked out. The next attempt will be around 8 p.m. MDT tonight.
