ESA astronaut Andreas Mogensen (right) and his Soyuz TMA-18M crewmates Sergei Volkov (centre) and Aidyn Aimbetov (left) at Star City earlier this week, ahead of their final exams before launch to the International Space Station in a few week's time.
They are set leave Earth from Baikonur, Kazakhstan, at 04:34 GMT (06:34 CEST, 10:34 local time) on 2 September 2015 and arrive at the Space Station just six hours later.
Andreas and Aidyn’s stay will be short – they will be back on terra firma just 10 days later. They will leave Sergei on the Station and return to Earth in a different Soyuz with Gennady Padalka, who is already in space.
