Tonight at 7pm CDT NASA will replay the Expedition 49 news conference featuring Kimbrough, Borisenko and Ryzhikov.

Andrey Borisenko started working for RSC Energia in 1989 and is serving as a test cosmonaut for it. RSC Energia is (I believe) a corporation which grew out of Korolev's design bureau; thirty to forty percent of it is owned by the Russian Federation (I think).
