Welcome Home!

In case you missed this landing.   Welcome home to Expedition 51 Flight Engineer and Soyuz Commander Oleg Novitskiy of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) and Flight Engineer Thomas Pesquet of ESA (European Space Agency) landed safely near the town of Dzhezkazgan, Kazakhstan.

I must say, I’ve enjoyed following Thomas Presquet during his stay aboard the ISS.

Reminder: The SpaceX launch is scheduled for 21:07 UTC / 17:07 ET and you will find a link for the launch posted about a quarter to the hour.

The weather outlook does not look promising:
From (US) NOAA for Cape Canaveral: Showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm, mainly after noon. Cloudy, with a high near 84. South southwest wind around 5 mph becoming north northeast in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
