Source: Gov. to recommend Detroit manager

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder will recommend that a Washington attorney become Detroit’s emergency manager, a source close to the governor said Wednesday.

At 2 p.m. Thursday, the governor is expected to publicly recommend attorney Kevyn Orr step in to help Detroit manage its challenging financial situation, the source said. Members of Michigan’s Local Emergency Financial Assistance Loan Board would make the official appointment.

The governor said earlier this month that Detroit lacked an adequate plan to resolve its $14 billion debt and that he would invoke a state law to appoint a manager to assume control of the city’s government.

After 143 days in space, three astronauts will depart the International Space Station late Thursday for a return flight to Earth in a Russian Soyuz spacecraft, NASA said.

One American and two Russians will land in Kazakhstan less than four hours after undocking from the ISS. They are scheduled to land at 10:57 a.m. local time Friday (11:57 p.m. ET Thursday).

Russian space modules are capable of landing on land and do not require a body of water to splash down in. Two parts of the spacecraft will burn up in the atmosphere, leaving only the Descent Module carrying the three crew members, according to NASA.
