Expedition 41/42 Launches, Arrives, and Enters the International Space Station

Expedition 41/42 Soyuz Commander Alexander Samokutyaev and Flight Engineers Elena Serova of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) and Barry Wilmore of NASA launched on the Russian Soyuz TMA-14M spacecraft on Sept. 26, Kazakh time, from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to begin a journey to the International Space Station. After launching, Samokutyaev, Serova and Wilmore arrived at the International Space Station on Sept. 26 following a six-hour rendezvous. They docked their craft to the Poisk module on the Russian segment of the complex and were greeted by station Commander Max Suraev of Roscosmos and Flight Engineers Reid Wiseman of NASA and Alexander Gerst of the European Space Agency. As the hatches were opened, the families of the newly arrived crew and American and Russian space officials viewed the activities from Baikonur near the launch site. Serova is the first Russian female cosmonaut to live and work aboard the International Space Station.
