New Astronaut Trio Will Blast Off to Space Station on March 14

A Russian cosmonaut and two American astronauts

For Ovchinin and Hague, it will be the first flight since a sensor failure two minutes after they blasted off in a similar launch on October 11 forced them to perform an emergency landing.

Hague, 43, said he was looking forward to the flight - his second attempt to get into space. The two men will be joined by United States astronaut Christina Koch for lift-off from Russia's Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 1914 GMT.

The Soyuz-FG rocket carrying a Soyuz MS-12 spacecraft with ISS Expedition 59/60 crew members Alexei Ovchinin, Nick Hague and Christina Koch blasted off the Baikonur space center at 22:14 Moscow time on Thursday.

"Soyuz MS-12" docked to the worldwide space station, the broadcast was carried on the website of Roskosmos.

NASA astronaut Nick Hague and cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin were rocketing toward space at 4,000 miles per hour on October 11 when the unthinkable happened. In one of them the cook will work together with McClane. I shake his hand. "There is no problem and there is nothing to worry about", Ovchinin said. Also, the two men seem not to have been discouraged by their ordeal. On March 29, Koch, together with another ISS crew member Anne McClain, who arrived at the ISS on December 3 past year, will perform the first-ever all-female spacewalk. Joining Koch for that historic event - an operation to upgrade the space station's power supplies - will be NASA astronaut Anne McClain.

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

NASA's Christina Hammock Koch, a MI native who grew up in Jacksonville, North Carolina, was one of three people on the spacecraft, alongside NASA's Nick Hague and Russia's Alexey Ovchinin. NASA will start a webcast at 2 p.m. EST, which will discuss the Expedition 59 mission and broadcast the crew's takeoff. It's a milestone that comes a few months delayed, but NASA's Nick Hague and Roscosmos' Alexey Ovchinin finally arrived at the space station after a harrowing emergency landing a year ago that occurred just minutes after liftoff. Then NASA plans to pick up its live broadcast again at 8:15 p.m. ET to show the spaceship dock with the ISS, which is scheduled to happen at 9:07 p.m. ET. After the 3:14pm EDT launch, coverage will resume with the Soyuz docking at 10:07pm, and the hatch opening and welcome ceremony at 11:30pm.
