At 2126 GMT on 18 March 2015, a Soyuz-FG launch vehicle successfully lifted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome, near Tyuratam in Kazakhstan. Before the launch from Pad 1, Soyuz Commander and Roscosmos cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin, Roscosmos cosmonaut Oleg Skripochka and NASA astronaut Jeff Williams had clambered aboard ready for their launch on a fast approach to the International Space Station (ISS). After just two orbits, that is what came to pass. At 0312 GMT on 19 March, the Soyuz TMA-020M capsule, the last of the Soyuz-TMA line, safely docked with the Poisk module of the ISS to add the three crew to the three already on board. The first of the new Soyuz-MS line of manned spacecraft will be launched on 21 June 2015.
