LOOK. The arrival of the new crew was particularly warm

It was striking that despite the tensions between the United States and Russia – since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine – the astronauts embraced each other very warmly. Astronauts from both countries have flown into space together several times since the start of war in Ukraine and Russia.

Several medical experiments are planned. It is the first space flight for Epps, Grebenkin and Dominick. Barratt is visiting the space station for the third time. This time there was already a seven-man crew on board.

NASA astronauts Matthew Dominick and Michael Barratt, their colleague Jeanette Epps, and cosmonaut Alexander Grebenkin would work on the ISS for about six months.
