Final days on ISS for Simonyi

Space flight participant Charles Simonyi continues to transmit SSTV images and make random voice contacts. He will be leaving the International Space Station on April 8. Preparation for the return of the Expedition 18 crew of Mike Fincke and Yuri Lonchakov has already begun. The two will have spent nearly 6 months in space. Simonyi will return with them after his second trip of 13 days in orbit.
Images being sent by Simonyi are being sent manually. The images are taken earlier and then transmitted in rapid succession during passes mainly over N. America and Europe.
