Before returning home, the crew members will arrange a dinner party. From 00:20 to 00:40, the space crew will establish a television contact with Earth, say goodbye to their colleagues, who will stay on the ISS, and go on board the Soyuz TMA- 08M. The manned spacecraft will land at 6:58, 146 kilometers to the southeast of Dzhezkazgan in Kazakhstan.
The next mission to the ISS is scheduled for September 26.
