Just one hint: Being part of this photo must've been a lot of fun.
The image shows the hair of NASA astronaut Cady Coleman aboard the International Space Station while she spoke during a change-of-command ceremony Sunday (May 22), a day prior her planned return to Earth.
Coleman, astronaut Paolo Nespoli of Italy and Russian cosmonaut Dmitry Kondratyev are slated to get their feet back on the ground today (May 23) via a Russian-built Soyuz space capsule with a planned landing time of 10:26 p.m. EDT (0226 Tuesday GMT). They'll land on the steppes of Kazakhstan in Central Asia.
That will put an end to their Expedition 27 mission to the orbiting outpost, a relatively uneventful yet nonetheless hair-raising experience.
