At the end of the first fit-check day, 12 days before launch, the prime crew of the Soyuz TMA-20 (Dmitry Kondratyev, Paolo Nespoli, Cady Coleman) and the back-up crew (Anatoly Ivanishin, Satoshi Furukawa, Mike Fossum) are questioned about any discrepancies, complaints or requests. These will need to be addressed before the next final fit-check,a few days before launch. Baikonur, 4 December 2010.
Paolo Nespoli, ESA's Italian astronaut, will travel to the International Space Station (ISS) on 15 December for a long-duration mission called MagISStra and serve as flight engineer for Expeditions 26 and 27. This will be the third six-month mission by a European astronaut on the Station.
