“When a frontier mulberry sale feels lik mulberry sale e home, it is no longer a frontier; it has become “civilization.” Those determined to wander must now pack their bags and move further into the cosmos,” Pettit wrote in a blog post about his upcoming journey home. “Space station is very much on the frontier. It is only my temporary home, and now it is time for me to venture back to my real home.”

Throughout their mission, Pettit and Kuipers have actively shared their orbital experiences with the public through Twitter, photos and blog posts. Pettit ev mulberry sale en penned a special poem, called “Last Day in Space,” to commemorate his imminent return.

During their stint at the space station, Pettit, Kononenko and Kuipers also played host to the first ever visiting commercial spacecraft in May SpaceX’s Dragon capsule. The unmanned Dragon spacecraft was launched to the orbiting outpost as part of a crucial test flight to demonstrate its ability to haul cargo to and from the station.

As the robotic spacecraft approached the orbiting complex, Pettit and Kuipers used the space station’s robotic arm to manually attach it to the outpost.

SpaceX holds a billion contract with NASA for 12 robotic cargo de mulberry sale livery flights.

Pettit, Kononenko and Kuipers launched into space on Dec. 21, 2011, and arrived at the orbiting laboratory two days later. The spaceflyers began their stay as members of the station’s Expedition 30 crew, but kicked off Expedition 31 with the departure of three previous station residents in April.

Kononenko served as commander of Expedition 31, but will pass the post on to fellow Russian cosmonaut Gennady Padalka in an official change of command ceremony Saturday (June 30), prior to his departure.

Padalka arrived at the space station in mid May with NASA astronaut Joe Acaba and Russian cosmonaut Sergei Revin. The three will remain aboard the orbiting outpost until September. They will be joined by three more crewmembers later in July.

Space station crew samples recycled urine

The three man crew of the International Space Station explored a strange new world Wednesday, boldly going where no other astronauts have gone before: toasting each other with sips of recycled sweat and urine in a major milestone for the lab complex.

With dozens of flight controllers and engineers joining them in a space to ground videoconference, station commander Gennady Padalka, flight engineer Michael Barratt, and Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata held a brief toasting ceremony, touching drink bags, and sipping recycled water for the first time since laboratory analysis confirmed its purity and cleanliness.

“We’re just really, really happy for this day and for the team that put this together,” said Barratt, floating w mulberry sale ith his crewmates in the Destiny laboratory module. “I know it took a lot of work and a lot of time and a lot of very smart people. There were a lot of problems to overcome and it’s all come to this. This is the kind of technology that’ll get u mulberry sale s to the moon and further, we hope. We’re just really, really happy to be here drinking this today.”

Before sampling the recycled water, he said “we are happy to have this water work through mulberry sale the system and we’re looking forward to working it through our systems and doing it all over again.”

Former space station science officer Donald Pettit told Barratt “we’re getting ready to toast some of yesterday’s coffee here with you guys.”

“That’s great to hear,” Barratt said. Here we go, here’s to you guys,, and here’s to everybody.”

The three station fliers then took a ceremonial drink from t mulberry sale heir water bags. Padalka squeezed out a blob of water and then drank it out of mid air.

“The taste is great and as Gennady is showing you, it’s perfectly clear and worth chasing in zero G here,” Barratt said.

“It looks really, really good from down here,” said space station Flight Director Courtenay McMillan. “I’m glad yours is only a couple of days old. But problems with a centrifuge in the unit’s vacuum distillation assembly forced the astronauts to extend testing until a replacement unit could be launched on a shuttle mission in March. The new unit worked well, and samples were returned to Earth for detailed laboratory analysis. Those tests cleared the way for today’s ceremony.

The water recycling system is critical to NASA’s plans to boost the station’s crew size from three to six later this month. It will be especially crucial after the space shuttle is retired next year because Russian, European, and Japanese supply ships cannot carry enough water to support six full time crew members.

Mounted in the Destiny laboratory, the water recycling system converts urine and condensate into pure water for drinking, personal hygiene, and oxygen generation. Given the cost of lifting water to orbit, officials say it will only take a few years for the new system to pay for itself. space program full time since 1984, first as Cape Canaveral bureau chief for United Press International and now as a consultant for CBS News. He has covered more than 125 shuttle missions, every interplanetary flight since Voyager 2’s flyby of Neptune, and scores of commercial and military launches.
