The crew of the International Space Station doubled on Friday, with the arrival of the latest Russian Soyuz capsule carrying three new astronauts. In the past, the three crew members on board would immediately head home on the Soyuz. But now, with a full complement of solar panels, ample room and a working water-recycling system, the station is finally ready to be a full-time home for six. The Soyuz, carrying Roman Romanenko of Russia, Frank De Winne of Belgium and Robert Thirsk of Canada, was launched Wednesday from Kazakhstan. It docked at 8:34 a.m. Eastern time Friday, and after checks for leaks, the hatches between the Soyuz and the station opened at 10:14 a.m. The current crew — Gennady Padalka of Russia, the station commander, Michael Barratt of NASA and Koichi Wakata of JAXA, the Japanese space agency — greeted the newcomers.
Representatives from the five agencies taking part in the station project — NASA, the Russian Federal Space texas hurricane insurance Agency, the auto insurance in Quebec European Space Agency, depression health insurance used car dealer insurance the Canadian Space Agency and JAXA — radioed up congratulations. Partly by design, partly by circumstance, each agency vision insurance quotes is irish travel insurance represented among the new expanded breast insurance fargo home insurance crew. “It is wonderful canadian online auto insurance quotes to see all six of you up there, all hazard insurance california five safeguard motorhome insurance partners working together,” said Steve famous classic car insurance MacLean, president of insurance auto ratings the cancel car insurance Canadian Space uk car direct insurance line online car insurance quotation Agency. With a crew of dental insurance new york specialist jewellery insurance six, the dental insurance agents amount liability insurance michigan agribusiness insurance of time spent on scientific experiments hot rod insurance will grow to more than 70 accidental life insurance hours a week from 20. Although fully principal mutual insurance staffed, the marine boat insurance atlanta casualty insurance company space station is not alberta canada car insurance yet complete. The space station buy contents insurance will turn ahac insurance into a Grand property taxes and insurance Central of space clasic car insurance when the 21st auto insurance space shuttle Endeavour arrives with seven astronauts on its next mission, currently scheduled for tricare supplemental health insurance next builders risk insurance month, for another professional liability insurance company burst of basketball insurance construction and renovation. During five spacewalks, astronauts are to complete the Japanese laboratory section, replace special event liability insurance old batteries on detroit home insurance one healthcare liability insurance of the solar best value pet insurance ocean harbor insurance wings and unload beneficial life insurance spares for some important space flood insurance rate map florida station systems. Mr. Obama’s speech, which dental insurance memphis was accompanied by gastric bypass insurance approval the release of a long-awaited new government strategy, architects and engineers insurance was an effort to balance the United States’ response to a rising security threat with concerns — echoing back low price car insurance to kit car insurance the debates on wiretapping without warrants in the Bush cheapest term life insurance years — that the government would be salvage motorcycle auction insurance regularly dipping into Internet statefarm car insurance traffic direct classic car insurance that knew no national boundaries. One element of the strategy clearly differed from that established by northwest mutual insurance the Bush administration in January 2008. Mr. Obama’s builders liability insurance approach is care insurance lead long term described in building insurance quote a 38-page public document being distributed to quinn car insurance the public and to companies that are most ais auto insurance specialists lifelong insurance owner operator insurance vulnerable to cyberattack; Mr. Bush’s strategy was entirely classified. But rhinoplasty insurance Mr. Obama’s policy review was new hampshire dental insurance not specific wheels car insurance about principle mortgage insurance how he would turn many of the goals into practical realities, and he said nothing about resolving the running turf wars overseas travel medical insurance among the Pentagon, the National Security Agency, the Homeland Security Department and other agencies over the conduct of builders home warranty insurance defensive and offensive cyberoperations. The White House approach appears to place a new “cybersecurity coordinator” over all of those agencies. Mr. Obama did not budget bike insurance name the coordinator Friday, but the policy review said that whoever the a affordable auto insurance president selects would be “action officer” northern ireland car insurance online quote inside the White House during cyberattacks, whether they were launched on the United States by hackers or governments. In an effort to silence critics who massage therapy liability insurance have commercial boat insurance life insurance jobs complained that the official will not have sufficient status to cut through the maze of competing federal agencies, Mr. Obama said tower life insurance the new coordinator would pet insurance life cover have “regular access pacificare insurance to me,” much provisional car insurance like the car insurance los angeles coordinator for nuclear and conventional threats. Many canada life insurance company computer security executives had been hoping that Mr. Obama’s announcement would represent a signa dental insurance turning point in the nation’s unsuccessful effort to and caravan insurance turn back a growing cybercrime disability insurance medical epidemic. On Friday, several said that while the president’s attention sounded promising, much would depend on medical insurance in Oklahoma whom he chose to fill the hagerty classic auto insurance disability insurance tax role. James A. Lewis, a director at the nj temporary disability insurance motorcycle insurance prices title insurance software Center insurance car groups uk termite insurance for Strategic & aspca pet insurance International Studies, a Washington group that published a bipartisan report last year business credit insurance calling on the president to appoint a cyberczar, average car insurance rates said that breast augmentation insurance tvr car insurance the car insurance for lady drivers dog insurance canada White House orr insurance had now narrowed the long term care insurance new jersey list of candidates for the position to fewer than 10, but that wheels insurance choosing the young female car insurance right medamerica insurance person would be difficult. “There aren’t a lot of people who have lic insurance the policy and the strategy skills online auto insurance quote and the technological knowledge to carry this out,” Mr. Lewis infertility insurance coverage said. rider motorcycle insurance nj boat insurance quote wedding insurance “If you’re talking about missiles and space, there are a lot of people who know policy and technology, but in cyber its find travel insurance such a new global travel insurance field we’re in vitro insurance talking about liability auto insurance a dog walker insurance really small gene pool.” For the first time, conseco life insurance Mr. bikeline insurance Obama also spoke best wedding insurance acupuncture insurance of his own brush with cyberattacks, in the pennsylvania title insurance presidential holiday insurance usa campaign. “Between August and October, hackers gained access to e-mails and a range of campaign files, from policy position papers to travel plans,” he said, describing renters insurance mn events that were known, though sketchily, at cherished car insurance condominium insurance the time. “It pc travel insurance compare ski insurance was,” he said, “a powerful reminder: in this franklin life insurance information age, one of your insurance payoff greatest strengths — in our case, our ability to title insurance career communicate to a wide range of supporters through the Internet — could also be one easy car insurance of your business liability insurance uk greatest vulnerabilities.” Mr. Obama’s 24 hour car insurance speech delved into technology rarely discussed in travel insurance health problems the East Room of the White fixed life insurance House. He work accident insurance referred to “spyware and malware insurance abstract and spoofing international car insurance and phishing and botnets,” all different approaches to what he called “weapons of mass disruption.” Although the president did not discuss details of the expanding role for the military in offensive and pre-emptive cyberoperations, senior officials said Friday business group health insurance that the Pentagon planned to create a armed forces insurance new cybercommand to organize decreasing term life insurance new york home owner insurance and home insurance in Toronto train for digital war, and to oversee offensive and defensive operations. A lingering disagreement has been how to coordinate that new command with the work of long term care insurance north carolina the no credit check auto insurance National Security Agency, home louisiana flood insurance to most of the government’s expertise on computer and network warfare. One plan now under discussion would put the doric insurance same general in charge of both the new cybercommand and the N.S.A. Currently, the life insurance explained fl car insurance security agency’s director is Lt. Gen. Keith B. Alexander, who would be expected to be the leading contender for the new, dual position. Industry executives were generally supportive oxford insurance group florida auto insurance rate of the initiative Mr. Obama announced, but also cautious. “There disability insurance claims was nothing I was disappointed in,” collector car insurance company said Mark Gerencser, a cybersecurity executive at car insurance accident report Booz Allen Hamilton, a consulting firm that professional malpractice insurance deals extensively in the western life insurance government’s cybersecurity strategy. Mr. Hamilton noted that home insurance toronto the United States had separated defense and offense in the cybersecurity arena, while its opponents, including Russia and China, had a more fluid strategy. “It’s like insurance buy out prt insurance we’re playing football and our sams health insurance adversaries are playing soccer,” he said.
