German Alexander Gerst of the European Space Agency, NASA's Serena Aunon-Chancellor and Russian Sergei Prokopyev of Roscosmos shot into the sky in warm, dry conditions at 1112 GMT. Docking and reaching the station is scheduled to take place on Friday, June 8. Next stop #ISS in two days if everything goes smoothly. The vehicle will be used to send Expedition 56-57 crew to the International Space Station on June 6. By comparison, fewer Americans say crewed space missions should be top priorities, with 18% saying that sending astronauts to Mars should be a top priority and only 13% saying the same about the moon.

"The majority of private companies rely on NASA as a customer and, if not, aspire to", Dreier explains in Axios.

The first components could launch as early as 2022 aboard NASA's powerful under-construction rocket, called the Space Launch System (SLS), and the Orion deep space capsule.

"L-6 hours. On our way to the suit-up building". Crew is doing great. "Notice uninterested camels on the edge of the road".

The head of the United States space agency is in talks with several global companies about taking over day-to-day operations at the International Space Station in the coming years, USA media said on Tuesday.

The blessing of the Soyuz rocket is one of several traditions of Russian space travel.

Moreover, Prokopyev said at the pre-launch press-conference that the ISS crew would stage their own football match on the day of the final on July 15.

Before funding to the International Space Station runs out, Bridenstine said that he is working on a transition plan for a private company to take it over and run it as a commercial space laboratory.

The 58% of US adults who say they wouldn't want to orbit the Earth aboard a spacecraft believe that such a trip would be either "too expensive" (28% of those asked) or "too scary" (28%), or that their age or health wouldn't allow it (28%).

Space research has been one of the few areas of worldwide cooperation between Russian Federation and the West that has not been wrecked by the Ukraine crisis.
