Examples of Soyuz in a Sentence
My journey really started seven or eight years ago. I've always been interested in space, and I started thinking about after I read about an American who went to Russia and went on the Soyuz [ spacecraft ].
The Russians are continuing to take a very close look at both the Soyuz and the Progress coolant leaks, they formed a state commission that is assessing the anomalies.
I'm looking down at the Earth right now and it's 250 miles below me, and only a small portion of that is the atmosphere, and when that Soyuz hits that atmosphere going 17,500 miles an hour, a lot of things have to happen just right to make sure we touch down and parachute safely. So when you look at that big space between us and the speed involved, it's pretty serious. And it's something that you definitely think about and consider. But it's my second time flying the Soyuz, my fourth time flying in space. It's something I signed up to do, and we'll be ready for it next Tuesday.
We checked them to make sure that they were still going to protect us if we needed to use them, we have some kind of on-orbit training that covers the descent procedures, so we're fresh with those. We talked to the specialists on the ground about all operations from the time we close the hatch until the time we get pulled out of the Soyuz. So, it's a pretty busy time. It's important, clearly, when you're coming back from space that we get everything right.
I can tell you, for sure, Mark Vande Hei is coming home on Russian Soyuz. We are in communication with our Russian colleagues. There's no fuzz on that.
