Expedition 24 Flight Engineers Fyodor Yurchikhin, Doug Wheelock and Shannon Walker relocated their Soyuz TMA-19 spacecraft on June 28 from the aft end of the Zvezda Service Module to the Rassvet module, which was installed in May. Yurchikhin manually docked the Soyuz to Rassvet for the first-ever linkup to the module. The move opens the aft port of Zvezda for the arrival of a new unpiloted Russian Progress resupply craft with food, fuel and supplies on July 2.
