Had a bath today - in gypsum! This will be the mould for my Soyuz seat liner, which ensures a snug fit on launch & re-entry!

I'm having a hard time figuring out the seat arrangements for TMA-19M; is Peake in the left-hand seat with Kopra in the right-hand seat or is it the other way?
Because the Falcon Heavy Test Flight was successful, it has inspired thousands of people to consider changing the future of space travel.

Press Release
N°40-2015

Paris, 2 November 2015

Call for Media: Opportunity to talk to astronaut Tim Peake before he sets off for space

On 6 November, ESA's first British astronaut, Tim Peake, will be paying his last visit to the UK before his launch to the International Space Station. He will take part in a news conference at the Science Museum London to discuss his upcoming mission.

Together with Jo Johnson, UK Minister of State for Universities and Science, Thomas Reiter, ESA's Director of Human Spaceflight and Operations, and David Parker, CEO of the UK Space Agency, Tim will talk with journalists about his training, and the
science and education objectives of his mission. While in space, Tim will perform more than 30 experiments for ESA and its Member States and take part in numerous others from ESA's international partners.

Tim's mission is ESA's eighth long-duration mission to the Space Station. It will start aboard a Soyuz spacecraft launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on 15 December. Together with NASA astronaut Tim Kopra and Russian cosmonaut Yuri
Malenchenko, Tim will embark on a six-month stay in space.

The mission is named Principia, after Isaac Newton's ground-breaking Naturalis Principia Mathematica, which describes the principal laws of motion and gravity. 

ESA and the UK Space Agency are together developing many exciting educational activities aimed at sparking the interest of young children in science and space, including Rocket Science, AstroPi, Zero Robotics, Mission-X Train like an Astronaut, and
amateur radio contact in space.

Am I correct in thinking docking will be at Rassvet?

MEDIA ADVISORY M15-163

NASA Astronaut Tim Kopra Available for Interviews Before Space Station Mission
 
NASA astronaut Tim Kopra, who is making final preparations for a December launch to the International Space Station, is available for live satellite interviews from 7-8 a.m. EST Tuesday, Nov. 24.

Kopra will participate in the interviews live from the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center in Star City, Russia. The interviews will be preceded at 6:30 a.m. by a video highlighting his mission training.

To participate, reporters should contact Karen Svetaka at 281-483-8684 no later than 3 p.m. Monday, Nov. 23. Media participating in the live shots must tune to NTV-3. Satellite tuning information is available at:

http://go.nasa.gov/1pOWUhR

Kopra, who was born in Austin, Texas, will launch to the station aboard a Soyuz spacecraft at 6:03 a.m. EST on Dec. 15 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, along with crewmates cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) and Tim Peake of ESA (European Space Agency).

Kopra’s first mission to space was as a flight engineer on Expedition 20 in 2009. During that two-month mission, he completed one spacewalk that lasted five hours, 32 minutes. He is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in New York. He holds a master’s degree in aerospace engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, a second master’s degree in strategic studies from the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and a third and fourth in business administration from Columbia University in New York and London Business School in the United Kingdom.

At the space station, Kopra, Malenchenko and Peake will join Expedition 46 NASA astronaut Scott Kelly and Roscosmos cosmonauts Mikhail Kornienko and Sergey Volkov. Kelly and Kornienko are approaching the ninth month of their one-year mission on board the space station. Together, the six crew members will continue the several hundred experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science currently underway and scheduled to take place aboard humanity’s only orbiting laboratory.

Kopra is scheduled to return to Earth with crew members Malenchenko and Peake in June.
