RSC Energia: the crew of the Soyuz MS-03 spacecraft has been approved
November 16, 2016

On November 16 the State Commission at the Baikonur Cosmodrome approved the lists of the prime and the backup crews of the modernized manned transportation spacecraft Soyuz MS-03 and confirmed the readiness of the integrated space launch system Soyuz FG/Soyuz MS-03 and its ground infrastructure for the launch under the ISS program.

The prime crew consisted of ROSCOSMOS cosmonaut Oleg NOVITSKY (the crew commander), ESA astronaut Thomas PESQUET (flight engineer) and NASA astronaut Peggy WHITSON (flight engineer-2). Approved as their backup crew are ROSCOSMOS cosmonaut Fedor YURCHIKHIN, NASA astronaut Jack FISHER and ESA astronaut Paolo NESPOLI.

After the meeting of the State Commission the prime and the backup crewmembers answered the questions of the Russian and foreign journalists at the traditional pre-flight press conference.

The roll-out of the launch vehicle with Soyuz MS-03 from the Assembly and Testing Facility and its installation in a vertical position on the launch pad of Area 1 (Gagarin’s launch pad) of the Baikonur Cosmodrome occurred on November 14. The spacecraft launch is scheduled on November 17.

I've hardly seen any photo where Pesquet is not with a big smile.
Any day with a rocket landing is a fantastic day.

The commentary on http://www.roscosmos.ru/317/ is far better that the endless burbling you get on NASA TV.

The commentary on http://www.roscosmos.ru/317/ is far better that the endless burbling you get on NASA TV.

Speaking of commentary, it was said during the EOM coverage of Soyuz MS-01 that Dan Huot will be the Houston PAO for this afternoon's launch.
