Default Soyuz TMA-05M, Soyuz-FG, July 15, 2012 (launch and mission updates)
by Galactic Penguin SST 07-13-2012, 06:13 PM

On this Sunday an international crew will fly to the ISS to join as part of the expedition 32/33. The crew consists of Russian cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko (who is on his fifth spaceflight and on his third ISS expedition), NASA astronaut Sunita Williams (who spent six months on the ISS in early 2007) and JAXA astronaut Akihiko Hoshide (who flew on the STS-124 mission that delivered the Japanese Lab Module to the ISS).
This is the 114th manned Soyuz mission to fly, and the fifth of the Soyuz-TMA-M series.

I didn't knew you were allowed to have such a long hair in a spacesuit. Funny.

She's going to have to find a way to attach those in 0G

Photos Final exams! :P















The crew got a full 5.0 mark during their two day exams a month ago at Star City.....which is pretty good!

The back-up crew (Roman Romanenko of Roscosmos, Thomas Marshburn of NASA and Chris Hadfield of CSA) also got full marks:
