In the Assembly building at the Russian cosmodrome in Baikonur, on 4 December 2010, the crew of Soyuz TMA-20 (Dmitry Kondratyev, Paolo Nespoli, Cady Coleman) walks toward the vehicle wearing their Sokol space suits and carrying a box that contains a fan. Today they are doing the first fit-check, to make sure that things inside the spacecraft are properly configured. They will also do a communication check, to make sure that the prime and backup radio work.
Paolo Nespoli, ESA's Italian astronaut, will travel to the International Space Station (ISS) on 15 December for a long-duration mission called MagISStra and serve as flight engineer for Expeditions 26 and 27. This will be the third six-month mission by a European astronaut on the Station.
