New international space station crew lifts off Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhztan on Wednesday, September 25. It will be Expedition 37-38.
Hopkins and Ryazanskiy are flight engineers, and Kotov commands the Soyuz spacecraft, which will rendezvous with the space station and dock after four orbits of Earth. Docking to the Poisk module on the Russian segment of the station will take place at 10:47 p.m. NASA TV coverage of docking will begin at 10 p.m.
At about 12:25 a.m. Sept. 26, hatches between the Soyuz and the space station will open. Expedition 37 Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin of Roscosmos, as well as Flight Engineers Karen Nyberg of NASA and Luca Parmitano of the European Space Agency will greet Hopkins, Kotov and Ryazanskiy. Hatch-opening coverage begins on NASA TV at midnight.
Hopkins, Kotov and Ryazanskiy will remain aboard the station until mid-March. Yurchikhin, Nyberg and Parmitano, who have been aboard the orbiting laboratory since late May, will return to Earth Nov. 11, leaving Kotov as commander of Expedition 38. (from NASA)
