SpaceX Launches Dragon Spacecraft to ISS Carrying Its First Russian Cosmonaut

This summer, NASA struck an agreement on integrated flights with Russian space agency Roscosmos. Under the deal, a Russian Soyuz 2.1a rocket carried NASA astronaut Frank Rubio to the International Space Station back in September.

The crew includes NASA astronauts Nicole Mann and Josh Cassada, Japanese Koichi Wakata, as well as Roscosmos Anna Kikina, who is the first Russian cosmonaut to take seat in the Dragon capsule.
