Soyuz TMA-12M departs from the ISS.
Now there's a sign that I've been too busy this last week. I missed setting a post about the departure of TMA-12M from the station! Last Thursday, Expedition 40 commander Steve Swanson, and flight engineers Alexander Skvortsov and Oleg Artemyev safely landed in Kazakhstan. They had left the station under the care of new commander Max Suraev, astronaut Reid Wiseman, and ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst. The new Expedition 41 crew will be joined by three more crewmembers on September 26th.
