MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The launch is set to deliver Roscosmos’ Sergey Ryzhikov and Sergey Kud-Sverchkov and NASA’s Kathleen Rubins to the ISS where they will remain until April of next year.
Russia’s Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket and Soyuz MS-17 spacecraft have been rolled out to their Baikonur launch pad ahead of a flight to the International Space Station (ISS), Roscosmos said Sunday.
The flight is scheduled for Wednesday and set to break speed records by delivering the three-member crew in just three hours and seven minutes, whereas such flights earlier used to take anywhere between six hours and two days.
