Expedition 35 Commander Chris Hadfield, Soyuz Commander Roman Romanenko and Flight Engineer Tom Marshburn are set to return to Earth Monday night to wrap up 146 days in space and 144 days on the International Space Station.

The departing trio will bid farewell to their crewmates and board their Soyuz TMA-07M spacecraft, closing the hatches between the two vehicles at 3:50 p.m. EDT. Undocking is scheduled at 7:08 p.m. A deorbit burn planned at 9:37 p.m. will set the Soyuz on track for a landing southeast of the town of Dzhezkazgan, Kazakhstan at 10:30 p.m. (8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Kazakh time).
