European Space Agency astronaut Andre Kuipers (foreground), Expedition 31 flight engineer, and Russian cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov, Expedition 30 flight engineer, prepare to eat a snack near the galley in the Unity node of the International Space Station. Shortly after this photo was taken, Shkaplerov, along with NASA astronaut Dan Burbank, Expedition 30 commander, and Russian cosmonaut Anatoly Ivanishin, Expedition 30 flight engineer, undocked from the station for their return to Earth in the Soyuz TMA-22 spacecraft.

Keith’s note: If you look to the right side of this image (enlargement above), along the cabin wall, you will see that the ISS crew has an assortment of colorful Huggies wipes packages featuring many of their favorite storybook characters including new friends: a princess and penguins. These cute little packages have been featured on the ISS for nearly a decade. NASA even has formal specs for them.
