  1. Anyone know why their was visiting crew and why Gennady Padalka came home on a different Soyuz to the one he went up in? it just seems a bit strange did one craft only fly up their with 2 men (thought that was frowned upon for safety and cost reasons), was there only 2 visiting crew members I though there was 3 but only two have cam home so far?

    also I always thought that the seats for every Soyuz where build specifically for each person, so my seat wouldn't real fit someone else perfectly?

  2. Is there gonna be another press conference on the new Pluto data sometime in the near future?
    I'd really love to hear the mission scientists talk about what they see in the images and what other interesting data has been down-linked so far,
