New Crew Transportation program started

A new Crew Transportation Vehicle will soon replace the Soyuz for european orbital journeys to and from the Celestia Space Station.

Maiden manned flight is scheduled for 2010 fall.

The first operational flight to the station is scheduled for mid 2011 to relieve Expedition 8 resident crew (Soyuz-09).

Similar in shape to the vintage Apollo capsule, will be able to carry 4 to 6 crew members in LEO and deliver up to 1000 kg of fuel.
