Soyuz TMA-9 is scheduled to relocate from the Zarya Module on the International Space Station, also known as the Functional Cargo Block, to the Zvezda Service Module March 30, a Mission Control spokesman said Monday.

"The undocking is scheduled for 2:25 a.m. Moscow time March 30 (10:25 p.m. GMT, March 29)," the official said. "Flight Engineer Mikhail Tyurin will dock Soyuz TMA-9 in manual mode with the ISS, and it is due to perform a free flight for 28 minutes."

The maneuver is designed to make room for the docking of the Soyuz TMA-9 piloted spacecraft carrying the first two crewmembers of the 15th expedition, Fyodor Yurchikhin and Oleg Kotov, and space tourist Charles Simonyi, whose launch from the Baikonur space center is scheduled for April 7.

They will later be joined by astronaut Clayton Anderson, who will be launched aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavor June 28, and Daniel Tani, who will arrive with the Space Shuttle Atlantis, scheduled for lift-off September 7.

The Mission Control officer added that the ISS Progress M-58 cargo would depart Tuesday.

The Expedition 14 crewmembers are Flight Engineer Sunita Williams, Commander Michael Lopez-Alegria and Flight Engineer Mikhail Tyurin.
