He accepted the expedition 59/61, compiled by the Russian cosmonaut Alexander Skvortsov, the Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano and the American Andrew Morgan.
The launch of the Soyuz took place on July 20 at 16:28 GMT. Then the spaceship was in the orbit of the Soyuz-FG rocket. Nine minutes after the launch, the ship ran from the third stage of the rocket and went to the ISS.
