I'm really looking forward to this Expedition. Having CSA astronaut Hadfield leading and commanding the ISS is quite an honour.

 I can recall discussing Chris's future prospects for an ISS mission with him at the CSA reception the night before the original scheduled launch for Julie Payette's STS-127 mission. At that time, he said he was hoping for an ISS Expedtion and now he's month's away from leading one...!!!

Go Chris !!!

Roscosmos is announcing (http://www.roscosmos.ru/main.php?id=2&nid=19525) the arrival of a Soyuz-FG launch vehicle and two Soyuz-U. This ones are for Progress-M launches, but Roscosmos is saying that the Soyuz-FG is for Soyuz TMA-06M. I suppose this is not correct because the Soyuz-FG for Soyuz TMA-06M was delivered on March 4th (http://www.roscosmos.ru/main.php?id=2&nid=18760), so this launcher must be for Soyuz TMA-07M.

The 11A511U-FG Soyuz-FG launch vehicle for the Soyuz TMA-06M launch, arrived to Baykonur on March 4th: http://www.roscosmos.ru/main.php?id=2&nid=18760 (in Russian).

So where is the rocket for TMA-05M?

That was scheduled for February-March delivery?

I am sure that it is mistake. The Soyuz-FG rocket that was delivered on Baikonur cosmodrome yesterday is rocket with #042 for Soyuz TMA-05M launch, not for Soyuz TMA-06M.
