At the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, the Soyuz MS-06 spacecraft and its Soyuz booster were transported from the Integration Facility to the launch pad on a railcar Sept. 10 for final preparations before launch Sept. 13 to the International Space Station. The Soyuz MS-06 will carry Expedition 53-54 Soyuz Commander Alexander Misurkin of Roscosmos and flight engineers Mark Vande Hei and Joe Acaba of NASA to the orbital complex for a five-and-a-half month mission. Also included are interviews at the launch pad with Joe Montalbano, Deputy ISS Program Manager and Sean Fuller, Director of Human Spaceflight Programs in Russia following the rocket's rollout.

Has Kanai been replaced by Walker?

No. Shannon Walker is only serving as backup for Joe Acaba.

If Norishige Kanai remained as backup, another Japanese astronaut or an ESA astronaut would've flown alongside Aleksandr Misurkin and Mark Vande Hei.
