And Liftoff! NASA astronaut Jeff Williams (@astro_jeffw) is now the first American to become a three-time, long-term resident of the International Space Station (@ISS). He arrived at the orbiting laboratory at 11:09 p.m. EDT Friday, with cosmonauts Alexey Ovchinin and Oleg Skripochka of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, where they will continue important research that advances NASA's Journey to Mars. The trio launched aboard a Soyuz TMA-20M spacecraft from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 5:26 p.m. (3:26 a.m. Saturday, March 19, Baikonur time), orbited Earth four times, and docked at the station. The hatches between the spacecraft and station opened at 12:55 a.m. Saturday, March 19. Photo Credit: NASA/Aubrey Gemignani #nasa #iss #space #spacestation #iss
