 March 18, 2001 - The International Space Station (ISS) and Space Shuttle Discovery crewmembers made history on the twelfth day in orbit. This was the day when the "Expedition One" crew officially turned over the ISS to the "Expedition Two" crew, which is documented on this video. The video contains highlights of the short ceremony where Expedition One Commander Bill Shepherd transferred command of the station to Expedition Two Commander Yury Usachev. After the ceremony, each crew went to its ship, and at 10:32 p.m. CST (04:32 GMT), Discovery undocked from the ISS and performed a flyaround to allow the astronauts to document the condition of the station. At the same time, the Expedition Two crew began its four-month stay on the station.
