Great Short of Russian ISS Personnel Moving A Soyuz Spacecraft to a New Parking Spot

Recently astronauts on the International Space Station spent 20 minutes moving a Soyuz TMA-09M spacecraft around to a new parking spot to make room for a Soyuz TMA-11M, scheduled to show up at a later date.

When the Soyuz TMA-11m arrives, it will bring the compliment to nine which is remarkable due to the fact that the Shuttle is no longer flying.

Also an Olympic torch will arrive with the additional crew (not lit, no fires aboard the ISS) and it will also make a trip outside on a spacewalk.
