The first manned launch to the International Space Station in 2019 will take place on March 14th. Information was provided by an employee of the Russian Academy of Sciences Evgeny Mikrin, who is the general designer of manned complexes.
Earlier it was said that the Russian-made Soyuz MS-12 transport manned spacecraft, whose crew member will be the Russian Alexei Ovchinin, the commander, and the American flight engineers Nick Heig and Christina Cook, will fly on March 1.
It is also worth noting that the transfer of the launch date will not affect the duration of the Soyuz flight to the station – all the same 6 hours. The launch will be carried out using the Soyuz-FG launch vehicle from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
