You can also read up on the female cosmonaut, Elena Serova, currently on board the ISS for 6 months. She is only the 4th female cosmonaut ever and the 1st to fly to the International Space Station (the last, Elena Kondakova, flew to Mir 17 years ago). Alan Boyle's MSNBC article also talks about how she will be joined by Italian ESA Astronaut Samantha Christoforetti who is only the 3rd European woman to go to space. The two missions will overlap for about three months.

No matter what you do, I hope you have a great and spacey week!
