The carrier rocket “Soyuz-FG” with “Soyuz” was launched from the first launch pad of the spaceport (Gagarin launch). The crew included spacecraft commander cosmonaut of the Roscosmos Oleg Kononenko, NASA astronauts and the Canadian space Agency Anne McClain and David Saint-Jacques. Docking with the space station should occur on December 3 at 20:36 GMT. 20 December it is expected to return from the ISS to Earth cosmonaut Sergei Prokopyeva, astronauts, NASA and the European space Agency (ESA) Serena Aunon and Alexander Gerst.

At a press conference before flying, Kononenko said that during the expedition the astronauts plan to go into space, to remove part of the protection of manned spacecraft “Soyuz MS-09”, which “may have been touched by the drill”, and return the item to the Ground. Astronauts also “will perform two research tasks”, if there’s time, he added, without revealing the nature of these tasks. The crew of the space station have discovered a leak of air in the living compartment of the Russian “Soyuz MS-09” on August 30. The General Director of Roskosmos said on September 3 that the hull of the ship from the inside are visible traces of the drill.

The launch was watched by the heads of Roskosmos and NASA Dmitry Rogozin and Jim Breidenstein. It was the first visit of the new head of NASA to Russia.

Triggered emergency rescue system of the ship: the crew went into a ballistic descent and Soyuz landed in the Kazak steppe. The astronauts were not injured. This accident was the first in 35 years by accident during the launch of manned spacecraft. In early November, the head of the emergency Commission, Deputy Director of the Institute Oleg Skorobogatov reported that the accident “Union” occurred because of deformation of the sensor separating the first and second stages in the Assembly of rockets at Baikonur.
