Ustream NASA live Now 22:33 UTC (13/5 - 2014)

The astronauts—Richard Mastracchio, Koichi Wakata, and Mikhail Tyurin—are part of Expedition 39 and have been on the ISS since November. At (22:33 UTC, 6:33 p.m. EDT,) they will undock, move away from ISS, and then at 00:45 a.m. UTC (8:45 p.m. EDT) they will commence their deorbit burn, which will drop them into Earth’s atmosphere and send them down into the fields of Kazakhstan.

Thank you!

Sometimes humans venture far into the vast empty space of anti-science,
and become unable to to discern non-reality from sense at others' expense,
and thus we undock our Soyuz and prepare for reentry into reality's defence.

And here is a video of yesterday's undocking [ISS] Undocking of Soyuz TMA-11M with Expedition 39 as Crew Return to Earth

Watched it last night. Ground camera team had a FUBAR moment right at touchdown, but prior to that, you could see the Mi-8s circling around the landing zone as the capsule descended by parachute. Then we got to see the fun and games involved in extracting the crew from the capsule.
