Seems we do not have one! Latest crew recovery went well. Christina Koch is back on Earth after 328 days in orbit.

A bit of excitement earlier when NASA cut off the live stream from the ISS due to the appearance of a number of lit 'objects' around the ISS.

The Russian Soyuz descent module taxi service works perfectly again.

328 days? I reckon there'll be a few guys looking for 'adventure' pressies for the missus. :))

Re the 'air leak' on the ISS, this confuses me:

"The station’s atmosphere is maintained at a pressure comfortable for the crew members, and a tiny bit of that air leaks over time, requiring routine re-pressurization from nitrogen tanks delivered on cargo resupply missions."

Don't the poor buggers get any oxygen?
