Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin and NASA astronaut Nick Hague are preparing for a new space flight, which is scheduled for March 1, 2019.

The General Director of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, announced their flight after the launch of the “Soyuz MS-11” spacecraft .

Due to the abnormal launch of the “Soyuz-FG” launch vehicle on October 11, 2018, the crew of the “Soyuz MS-10” spacecraft could not reach the International Space Station, but almost immediately resumed preparations for the next flight.

NASA astronaut Christina Koch also joined the training sessions of Alexey Ovchinin and Nick Hague.
