NASA ISS Mission: Soyuz Transport Olympus

This is the 'Descent Module' of the Soyuz spacecraft, 'Olympus'.

Soyuz Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin is in the centre seat, Shannon to his left and to his right Astronaut Wheels.

Here the crew are getting ready for their departure and return to the Earth on Thursday evening.

That shiny silver dome in front of Fyodor is the hatch. Not long now before the hatch will open and they’ll get their first breath of fresh air in nearly 6 months!
