COSPAR ID: 

Description

Soyuz MS-11 spacecraft will bring the Expedition 58/59 crew to their orbital home and workplace for a half-year mission. Carrying an international crew trio from the U.S., Russia and Canada, the trusted Soyuz FG rocket will operate for nine minutes to deliver the spacecraft into a 200-Kilometer orbit from where it will maneuver up into the Station’s orbit of 400 Kilometers for a fully automated link-up. The 7,200-Kilogram Soyuz MS-11 spacecraft will remain docked to the Rassvet Module throughout the crew’s stay on ISS to act as life boat and return them to Earth at the end of their flight via parachute-assisted landing in Kazakhstan.
