Anderson and crewmates move Soyuz

Aerospace engineering alum Clay Anderson and his Exhibition 15 crewmates onboard the International Space Station (ISS) are working on station maintenance in preparation for the arrival of two spacecraft and a major addition to the ISS in October. On September 27, they boarded the Soyuz spacecraft that was docked in the Earth-facing port of the station’s Zarya module and moved it 80 feet to the opposite side of the ISS. The Soyuz was moved to make room for the arrival of another Soyuz spacecraft, which is bringing the ISS three-member crew from Expedition 16. It is scheduled to arrive on October 12.
