Astronauts have begun to establish the first manned space mission of Russia since an unprecedented accident in Soyuz. He said he was ready to take risks by pulling security concerns aside on Sunday.
Roscosmos' Oleg Kononenko, NASA's Anne McClain and the Canadian Space Agency David Saint-Jacques will start the International Space Station (ISS) from Baikonur in Kazakhstan on Monday.
A Soyuz rocket carrying Russia's Aleksey Ovchinin and US astronaut Nick Hague will go to ISS after they fail to explode on October 11th.
The parity fled unharmed, but the failed launch was the first example of Russia's post-Soviet history and a new failure for the space industry, which the country was once proud of.
The team to the ISS rejected possible concerns about their security.
Team commander Oleg Kononenko at a press conference at Baikonur said, "Risk" is part of our profession, adding to them "definitely" preparing "reliable crews for the flight."
"We're psychologically and technically ready for the explosion, and God forbid, it can happen in any situation, lama said the 54-year-old. Said.
Anne McClain, 39, a former military pilot, received a similar note.
Iz We're ready for that, “he said.
The Canadian Saint-Jacques added that the Soyuz spacecraft was "incredibly safe" and said it was "really reassuring" to witness the launch canceled in October from Baikonur.
The 48-year-old detective, "Soyuz's intelligent design and search and rescue people here is an incredible work to be ready for every launch," he stressed.
Russia said last month that the launch of the Soyuz rocket failed because of a sensor damaged during the assembly at the Baikonur cosmopolitan. But officials insisted the spacecraft remain reliable.
In 2013, Saint-Jacques will be the first Canadian astronaut to visit the space station since Chris Hadfield, who recorded a version of David Bowie's Space Oddity classic on the ISS.
Canada's governor and former astronaut Julie Payette is expected to be among the electorate to watch Monday's launch.
Both Saint-Jacques and McClain will fly for the first time in triples to reach the ISS six hours after the blastoff. Kononenko is starting to contribute to her fourth mission, an impressive 533 diary.
He deployed NASA to McClain and represented the United States' national rugby union team in the past.
He said that the training for spacewalking is like rugby because it requires benz sand, hardness, mental focus, and more Uzay.
