  |   April 6, 2009 at 9:26 AM
HOUSTON, April 6 (UPI) -- The U.S. space agency says it will Webcast the landing of the Russian Soyuz spacecraft returning the Expedition 18 crew to Earth.

The original Friday landing was postponed because of flooding in Kazakhstan and was rescheduled for Wednesday at a more southerly landing site.

Expedition 18 U.S. astronaut Michael Fincke, U.S. space participant Charles Simonyi and Russian cosmonaut Yury Lonchakov are to land at 3:15 a.m. EDT, which is 1:15 p.m. local time in Kazakhstan. Fincke and Lonchakov have been aboard the orbiting laboratory since October and will land in the same Soyuz TMA-13 spacecraft that carried them into orbit.
