The Russian cosmonau Oleg Kononenko and American astronomer Anne McClain will join Saint-Jacques on the mission, organized for last 6½ months. He raised them as he had organized at 6:31 a.m. ET. The trial is going to tap the ISS six hours later.

This is the first time that Canada has been in space since 2013, when Hadfield won huge popularity around the world by providing pictures – and occasional musical performance – to everyday life on the orbiting lab.

Saint-Jacques – a a doctor who also has degrees in engineering and astrophysics as well as a commercial pilot license – to start the ISS later this month, on December 20. However, it was launched to move it up after feeding the Soyuz rocket in October to force serious minutes abroad after cleaning.

He will spend time in the ISS carrying out experiments, acting Canadarm2 (the robotic arm built by Canada on the ISS board) and testing new technologies, said the Canadian Space Agency.

This could be the last time Canada launches on Soyuz: NASA is preparing to return a human launch to US soil starting in 2019, with two new crew caps provided by SpaceX and Boeing.
