A One-in-a Lifetime Chance on the ISS

Next month, the International Space Station might moor the largest number of spaceships, from the US, Russia, Europe and Japan.
During this historical moment, Scott Kelly (Mark Kelly's brother) and two other Russian cosmonauts(that's what they call astronauts in Russia) will fly their Soyuz spacecraft to a vantage point where they'll witness and take photos of the ISS and its spaceships.
This might be the last time something like this will happen, because the space shuttle will retire really soon- only 3 more launches left. Robonaut 2 will be on the next shuttle Discovery, by the way.
