We will be following the two Astronauts aboard the station as they go thought their daily life such as doing Science experiments, using the Space toilet, doing paperwork?, and of course they would be touring us around the station.

‘Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey’ is to be shown after ‘Live from Space’.
‘Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, is a reboot of the original Cosmos hosted by Carl Sagan. Now presented by Neil Tyson with breathtaking CGI Special Effects and new Science discoveries and theories. It will simulcast on FOX International Channels and National Geographic.
You could also follow ‘Live from Space’ from the Internet, although I have no idea how it’s going to work. But it does give you a fancy view of where the station is in relation to the Earth so it’s worth a visit nevertheless. Visit the website www.livefromspace.com
Why Three Astronauts?
Normally the station would be occupied by six Astronauts/Cosmonauts but the time of the event will be in the middle of a crew rotation done every six months. The crew of Expedition 37 will say farewell to the crewmates they’re leaving behind on Monday and board the Soyuz TMA-10M closing the hatch on 4:45 p.m. EDT. The Expedition 39 crew is expected to launch aboard the Soyuz TMA-12M on March 25. This also marks the first time the International Space Station will be under the Command of a Japanese Astronaut, Koichi Wakata.
