Soyuz MS-11 launch

Soyuz MS-11 spacecraft launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan atop a Soyuz-FG rocket on December 3, 2018, carrying NASA astronaut Anne McClain, Canadian Space Agency astronaut David Saint-Jacques, and Roscosmos cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko.

It was the first manned launch since the Soyuz MS-10 spaceflight aborted shortly after launch on 11 October 2018 due to a failure of the Soyuz-FG launch vehicle boosters.

The spacecraft successfully docked to the ISS about six hour after the launch.
