Description

Soyuz TMA-1 is a Russian automatic passenger craft that was launched by a Soyuz-U rocket from Baikonur at 03:11 UT on 30 October 2002. It carried a crew of three astronauts (two Russian and one Belgian) to automatically dock with the International Space Station (ISS). This new Soyuz TMA-1 is a larger craft that has more comfortable space and ergonomic furniture than the previous TM models. It will remain parked at the ISS as the escape craft, relieving the Soyuz TM-34. The crew will do several microgravity experiments on the ISS during their 10-day stay there.
