Expedition 71 Crew Prepares for Launch in Kazakhstan | International Space Station

At the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, the International Space Station’s Expedition 71 crew, NASA astronaut Tracy C. Dyson, Soyuz commander Oleg Novitskiy of Roscosmos (Russia) and Belarusian cosmonaut Marina Vasilevskaya participated in a variety of activities March 6-18, 2024, as they prepared for their upcoming mission. Dyson, Novitskiy and Vasilevskaya are set to launch March 21 from Baikonur in the Soyuz MS-25 spacecraft for a mission on the International Space Station. 

The backup Soyuz crewmates also attended the preparation activities, including NASA astronaut Don Pettit, Roscosmos cosmonaut Ivan Vagner and Anastasia Lenkova of Belarus. The footage includes the crew’s arrival in Baikonur, their Soyuz fit checks in the Cosmodrome’s Integration Facility and other training milestones.

Dyson will spend six months on the station, returning to Earth in September on Soyuz MS-25 while Novitskiy and Vasilevskaya will return to Earth April 2 on Soyuz MS-24 along with NASA astronaut Loral O’Hara, who has been aboard the orbital complex since last September.
