Soyuz MS-16 | Soyuz 2.1a

A maiden flight of sorts. This is the first Soyuz 2.1a rocket to carry humans into space. It will transport the crewed Soyuz MS-16 spacecraft to the International Space Station. The crew consists of Russian cosmonauts Anatoli Ivanishin and Ivan Vagner, and NASA Astronaut Christopher Cassidy. They will complement the crew of Expedition 62 and continue its work with Expedition 63.
