Canadian astronaut Saint-Jacques 'astounded' by voyage to space station

Russia launches first manned voyage to ISS since rocket accident

The new crew includes NASA astronaut Anne McClain, Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques, and Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenkoof.

It is reported by Roscosmos on Monday, December 3, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to the Correspondent.

Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques has arrived at the International Space Station. The failure was later attributed to a sensor that was damaged during the rocket's final assembly.

Aboard the International Space Station, he will conduct a number of science experiments, with some focusing on the physical effects of the weak gravity astronauts experience in orbit as well as how to provide remote medical care.

The latest trip comes less than two months after a previous mission on October 11 failed, when two astronauts from the U.S. and Russian Federation were forced to make an emergency landing, as a result of a problem with the booster.

The three current inhabitants - Alexander Gerst of Germany, Serena Auñón-Chancellor of the United States and Sergey Prokopyev of Russian Federation - plan to return December 20 aboard a Soyuz module that has been docked to the station since June.

The trio will join the ISS Expedition 58 crew that just went up, and they will return to Earth in October 2019 as members of Expedition 60.

On Monday, NASA announced Hague and Ovchinin will now launch to the space station on February 28, along with NASA astronaut Christina Hammock Koch.

Gov. Gen. Julie Payette, herself a former astronaut, was also among those watching the launch in Kazakhstan.

About two minutes into the fight, the boosters separated as planned, passing the point where the rocket had failed during the launch October 11. NASA announced the flight crew for that mission today.

The existing ISS crew is supposed to get its ride back home in a Soyuz capsule that is docked to the station. Hague and Ovchinin were on their way to join the station's Expedition 57 crew on October 11, when their Soyuz's rocket booster experienced a malfunction shortly after launch, aborting the mission.

Some of the investigations they will conduct are sponsored by the U.S. National Laboratory on the space station, which Congress designated in 2005 to maximize its use for improving quality of life on Earth. The accident highlighted the "smart design of the Soyuz and the incredible work that the search and rescue people here on the ground are ready to do every launch", he said.
