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.
