Russian cosmonaut flying to ISS with SpaceX this fall

It’s official: SpaceX will soon start flying Russian cosmonauts to the International Space Station (ISS).

NASA announced today (July 15) that it has signed a deal with Russia’s federal space agency Roscosmos to exchange seats on craft traveling to and from the orbiting lab. NASA astronauts will fly aboard Russian Soyuz spacecraft, as they have done many times, and cosmonauts will climb aboard private American vehicles such as SpaceX’s Dragon capsule, which has never happened before.
