A rendezvous in space by Stavros Siamptanis
Since the retirement of Nasa’s Space Shuttle in 2011, Soyuz has been the sole means of transportation of crew members to the International Space Station to this day (2016). This graphic attempts to explain the three main events (1. Launch – 2. Rendezvous & Docking – 3. Re-entry) of Soyuz’s journey to the
ISS. With technology that was designed in the 1960s, it might be a good idea to buckle your seat-belt as the ride might prove to be bumpy.
