It is specified that the launch of the Falcon-9 rocket is scheduled from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. In addition to a Russian cosmonaut, the Crew-6 mission team includes NASA astronauts Stephen Bowen and Woody Hoburg, as well as an astronaut from the UAE, Sultan Al Neyadi.

“In March 2023, NASA astronaut Loral O’Hara, along with Roscosmos cosmonauts Oleg Kononenko and Nikolai Chub, is scheduled to be delivered to the ISS by Soyuz MS-23,” Roscosmos added.

In July, Roscosmos and NASA signed an agreement on integrated flights of astronauts to the ISS. As part of the agreement, the Soyuz-2.1a rocket with a Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft was launched from Baikonur to the ISS on September 21, carrying another crew that included Russian cosmonauts Sergei Prokopyev and Dmitry Petelin as well as NASA astronaut Francisco Rubio.
