Preparing for the Beyond mission

On 20 July 2019, our astronaut Luca Parmitano will be launched to the International Space Station from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

He will fly to the Station alongside Russian Cosmonaut Alexander Skvortsov and US Astronaut Andrew Morgan in a Russian Soyuz MS-13 spacecraft.

Named 'Beyond', this is Luca's second space mission since joining our Astronaut Corps in 2009.
