Here’s the correct answer to the 3rd question in our Mission Quiz (“Name the two crew members who will oversee ATV-4 docking from inside the ISS“) courtesy of ESA’s Lionel Ferra at EAC/Cologne.

Lionel is a regular source for the ATV blog; he works with the ESA and international partner astronauts in Cologne training them on ATV operations.

Luca Parmitano and Alexander Misurkin will be the ones! Thanks again for the posting!

Therefore, our 3rd quiz question is winner-less, as the three responses received were:

That will be Fyodor Yurchikhin and Luca Parmitano
Ian Benecken

    Pavel Vinogradov and Alexander Misurkin
Stefano Sabbate

Luca Parmitano and Pavel Vinogradov

We’re planning a future quiz to query our keen blog visitors on the next tough topic: Which two astronauts will over see the undocking of ATV-4… but that’s for later…

Editor’s note: Thank you to all who participated for your patience. Please accept our sincere apologies for taking so long to respond with the wrap-up on the quiz. A number of other topics came up that forced this posting a bit off to the right… Mea Culpa!
