Preparing to say farewell

Around this time tomorrow Anousheh Ansari will no longer be on the station, having joined Pavel Vinogradov and Jeffrey Williams on the Soyuz spacecraft that will take them back to Earth; landing is scheduled in Kazakhstan at approximately 9:10 pm EDT Thursday. In the meantime, Ansari speaks about the joys of weightlessness and the benefits of Velcro when those joys aren’t so apparent. Her official web site now has several videos she recorded on the ISS, including one thanking all the people who visited and left comments on her blog. (Note that in the videos she is wearing overalls whose design incorporates both the US and Iranian flags. Hopefully no one at the State Department is going apoplectic at the moment…)
