L-5 h 15 min: building 254. The memories are flooding back now after saying goodbye to family and friends. Lots of emotions, but positive and focused. The crew are doing well.

L-4 h 20 min: final fit & leak check time for our pressurised Sokol spacesuits. A good reminder that what we do can be dangerous, yet these will keep us safe, & stylish en route to the #ISS. But when the helmet is closed, my mind switches off all other thoughts.

Кажется, при короткой схеме санузел в БО "Союза" не расконсервируется :)?

L-2 h 35 min: driving to Gagarin’s launchpad and there it is, our rocket. The Soyuz #MS13. Majestic and waiting patiently for two astronauts and a cosmonaut to climb aboard: a quiescent volcano - ready to erupt its tremendous energy.

L-2 h 30 min: One more look at my planet… it’s time to climb aboard our rocket. Next stop @Space_Station. From liftoff to docking, it will take us six hours. See you in #space, friends!

Expedition 60 astronauts @AstroDrewMorgan, @astro_luca, and cosmonaut Alexander Skvortsov, your next meal will be spacefood! Final lunch at #Baikonur プライムとバックアップで囲む最後のランチ。打ち上げクルーはこの後発射台へ!

Дублёрам даже супа не налили. Японец что-то спионерил из тарелки Скворцова :)

Expedition 60 Mission Patch Honors Apollo 11

Since the Gemini V mission in 1965, astronauts have contributed to the design of their mission patches. Michael Collins, Apollo 11 Command Module pilot, traced a photo of an eagle from a wildlife magazine after fellow astronaut Jim Lovell proposed the idea. Thanks to detail-oriented decisions by Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and other NASA personnel, the Apollo 11 patch became one of the most recognizable patches in spaceflight history.

The three-person crew that will complete Expedition 60 aboard the International Space Station will launch on Saturday, July 20 — the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing. NASA astronaut Drew Morgan, Luca Parmitano of ESA (European Space Agency) and Alexander Skvortsov of Russian space agency Roscosmos helped design their mission patch as a tribute to the intrepid Moon landing mission. Here's a breakdown of the elements seen in the mission insignia:

  • Three stars with the Moon superimposed forms the letter “L,” the Latin symbol for 50.
  • The Moon is depicted as a waxing crescent, as it was on July 20, 1969.
  • The familiar silhouette of the International Space Station is visible, flying across the night sky. Stars, numerous and bright as seen from the space station, form the shape of an eagle in the same pose as on the iconic patch of the Apollo 11 mission.
  • The sunrise represents the fact that we are still in the dawn of humanity’s exploration of the solar system.
  • The hexagonal shape of the patch represents the space station's cupola, with the six points of the hexagon symbolizing the six crewmembers of Expedition 60.
  • Just like on the Apollo 11 mission patch, the names and nationalities are deliberately omitted as a way to highlight that space missions — then, now, and in the future — are for Earth and all humankind.

The Expedition 60 crew will continue work on hundreds of experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science aboard humanity’s only permanently occupied microgravity laboratory.

Live NASA TV coverage of the July 20 launch and docking activities will begin at 11:30 a.m. EDT. Docking coverage will follow at 6 p.m. EDT, followed by hatch opening and welcome coverage at 8 p.m. EDT.

NASA TV Covers Station Crew Launch Live Saturday on Apollo 50th

The Expedition 60 crew (left) is launching 50 years to the day Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin first stepped foot on the Moon.

At the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, teams are making final preparations for the launch of NASA astronaut Andrew Morgan, Luca Parmitano of ESA (European Space Agency) and Alexander Skvortsov of the Russian space agency Roscosmos to the International Space Station. Their journey to the station will begin with a lift off at 12:28 p.m. EDT Saturday (9:28 p.m. in Baikonur), 50 years to the day that astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin stepped on the Moon in a giant leap for humanity.

Live launch coverage will begin Saturday at 11:30 a.m. on NASA Television and the agency’s website.

The three will join NASA astronauts Nick Hague, Christina Koch and Expedition 60 Commander Alexey Ovchinin of Roscosmos.

The Expedition 60 crew will spend more than six months conducting about 250 science investigations in fields such as biology, Earth science, human research, physical sciences, and technology development. Work on the unique microgravity laboratory advances scientific knowledge and demonstrates new technologies, making research breakthroughs that will enable long-duration human and robotic exploration of the Moon and Mars.

Some of the investigations they will conduct are sponsored by the U.S. National Laboratory on the space station, which Congress designated in 2005 to maximize its use for improving quality of life on Earth. Highlights of upcoming investigations the crew will facilitate on the orbiting laboratory in the unique microgravity environment include the growth of moss aboard the station, a platform to attempt successful printing of biological tissues and bio-mining in space.

Below is the crew’s launch timeline in EDT:
