Cosmonauts Sergey Ryzhikov and Sergey Kud-Sverchkov, and NASA astronaut Kate Rubins are launching from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan as part of the Soyuz (“Saw-YOOZ”) MS-17 mission. They are traveling to Low Earth Orbit for rendezvous with the International Space Station (ISS). This flight is Soyuz MS-17. This crew will join Expedition 63 on the ISS, taking the crew complement to 6. The current ISS crew will leave soon after, forming the start of Expedition 64. They will be joined two weeks later by SpaceX’ Crew 1 flight, raising the crew complement to 7.
