Ride a rocket!
A 50-minute VHS video cassette from Spaceflight Now features spectacular "rocketcam" footage from April's launch of NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey probe. Available from the Astronomy Now Store in NTSC format (North America and Japan) and PAL (UK, most of Europe, Australia and other countries).
The Progress M-44 resupply ship docked with the station automatically at 0950 GMT (4:50 a.m. EST) on Wednesday.
The Alpha crew moved their Soyuz capsule from the aft of Zvezda to the Zarya module's Earth-facing port on Saturday.
