Kazakhstan: Soyuz MS-10 crew answer questions a day before launching into Space

Main crew members Astronaut Nick Hague and Cosmonaut Aleksei Ovchinin, who are set to venture to the International Space Station (ISS) on the Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft, shared their feelings and scientific plans ahead of the upcoming flight, speaking from Baikonur in Kazakhstan on Wednesday. The launch is scheduled for October 11, after which both spacefarers will join the Expedition 57 crew... Еще members already aboard the ISS. The backup crew members Cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko and Astronaut David Saint-Jacques, who also took part in the press conference, are set to head into Space in December. The participation of both crews at the press conference is considered to be a unique fact in the history of Space because they will be operating simultaneously within the same mission at the ISS. Answering questions by reporters, NASA Astronaut Nick Hague said that cooperation between astronauts and cosmonauts who work at the ISS and outside it shows an example «that makes the complicated and seemingly impossible possible.» For the first time, Hague and Ovchinin plan to carry out a series of experiences with 3D printers once they are aboard ISS. Talking about a planned venture, the Russian Cosmonaut said if the experiments went successfully, they would «move further, do more complex things.»
