MOSCOW, May 17 (Itar-Tass) —— A Soyuz spaceship will bring a new crew to the International Space Station on Thursday, May 17.
The new Russian-American crew will have to receive the first commercial transport ship.
“The Soyuz TMA-04M, which blasted off from Baikonur, Kazakhstan, on Tuesday, May 15, will bring Gennady Padalka, Sergei Revin and NASA astronaut Joseph Acaba to the ISS,” the Mission Control Centre told Itar-Tass.
The spaceship is scheduled to dock with the ISS automatically at 08:38 Moscow time.
The ISS resident crew, Oleg Kononenko of Russia, Andre Kuipers of the European Space Agency and Donald Pettit of NASA, will work with the “newcomers” until the end of June.
