Russian crew blasts off to International Space Station

Союз с экипажем успешно пристыковался к МКС

“Soyuz MS-12” docked to the International space station the broadcast was carried on the website of Roskosmos

It's been a number of months since the failed Soyuz launch derailed plans for astronaut Nick Hague and cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin to head to the International Space Station, but they finally made it to their original destination.

McClain, Saint-Jacques and Kononenko are scheduled to return to Earth in June, while Hague, Koch and Ovchinin remain onboard the space station until early fall.

The trio were joining American Anne McClain, Russian Oleg Kononenko, and Canadian David Saint-Jacques, who are now on board the ISS.

This marks the third flight into space for Ovchinin, the second for Hague, and the first for NASA astronaut Koch.

Facebook says it 'quickly' removed New Zealand shooter's video
After Facebook stopped the livestream from New Zealand, it told moderators to delete from its network any copies of the footage. In 2017, a father in Thailand broadcast himself killing his daughter on Facebook Live.


NASA astronauts Vande Hei and crewmate Scott Tingle ventured outside the International Space Station to perform maintenance on the station's Canadarm2 robotic arm during a seven-hour and 24-minute spacewalk.

The problem that prevented Hague and Ovchinin from reaching the ISS seems to have been fixed, as no incidents were reported since.

On Board the ship was the Russian Alexey Ovchinin Americans Nick Hague and Christine cook. The system detached a capsule with the crew from the rocket and sent it back down to the ground on a severe ballistic trajectory. On March 29, Koch, together with another ISS crew member Anne McClain, who arrived at the ISS on December 3 previous year, will perform the first-ever all-female spacewalk.

This, five months after the failed launch that carried two passengers.
