A look inside of our ride home. This is the 'Descent Module' of our Soyuz spacecraft, 'Olympus'. Our Soyuz Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin in the center seat, Shannon to his left and me to his right. Here we are getting ready for our departure and return to the Earth on Thursday evening. That shiny silver dome in front of Fyodor is the hatch. Not long now... that hatch will open and we’ll get our first breath of fresh air in nearly 6 months!
Our Soyuz spacecraft 'Olympus' stands ready for flight... tonight we set sail for the blue planet. It has been nearly 6 months, and we are being called home. I hope to one day return to this place. Seems I’ve lived a hundred lifetimes... yet I blinked, and the time has slipped away. What will that first breath be like when the hatch opens on Earth? ...I can only imagine...
