Soyuz-TMA 7



Soyuz-TMA 7 is a Russian passenger transportation craft that was launched by a Soyuz-FG rocket from Baikonur at 03:55 UT on 1 October 2005. It carried a Russian and an American astronaut, and a tourist from America to the International Space Station (ISS). It docked with the Pirs module at 05:30 UT on 3 October automatically. The astronauts did some space-walks; the tourist grew some crystals. The previously docked Soyuz-TMA 6 separated from the ISS, and soft-landed in Kazakhstan at 04:08 UT on 10 October, returning that tourist and the two previous astronauts who had inhabited the ISS for six months.
