Soyuz capsule delivers 3 astronauts to Space Station

NASA says the arrival of this new crew helps aid its "long-term increase in crew size on the US segment from three to four, allowing NASA to maximize time dedicated to research on the space station".

The new space mission will be the second expedition for Gerst. If you're on the ground then you can only see the rocket take off, if you're on the International Space Station then you can only see the payload arrive, and if you're inside the rocket then you have a bad view of the whole thing. The Soyuz was lifted off at 7:12 AM EDT.

A Russian space capsule carrying three astronauts has docked with the International Space Station two days after it was launched from Kazakhstan. On arrival of these three astronauts, the orbiting lab will be full as it will be housing six astronauts. They'll spend almost six months on the station, working alongside Artemyev as well as NASA's Drew Feustel and Ricky Arnold.

The spacecraft is said to enter the designated orbit on Friday, and then it will be docking to the International Space Station. Their mission is to conduct 250 experiments in fields such as biology, Earth science, human research, physical sciences and technology.

Among the astronauts, Gerst has already flown to space and also an ex-inhabitant of ISS from May to November 2014. The Russian rocket carries US astronaut Serena Aunon-Chancellor, Russian cosmonaut Sergey Prokopyev, and German astronaut Alexander Gerst.

The crew will have little time to adjust with the environment of ISS as their planned spacewalk was scheduled for the June 14th, 2018.

The two spacewalkers will install brackets and high-definition cameras near an global docking adapter mated to the front end of the station's Harmony module.
