This rocket launch will mark the first time in more than 21 years that a Soyuz crew only includes Russian cosmonauts and tourists.
The Soyuz MS spacecraft carrying the International Space Station (ISS) Expedition 66 docking with the ISS.
Russia's Soyuz-2.1a carrier lifted off on Tuesday with actress Yulia Peresild, movie director Klim Shipenko and cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov.
For the first time in history, Soyuz will be piloted to the ISS by one mission commander without any assistance of a professional flight engineer.

An international crew of Russian cosmonauts Oleg Novitskiy and Pyotr Dubrov; NASA astronauts Mark Vande Hei, Shane Kimbrough and Megan McArthur; Japan's Aki Hoshide; and Thomas Pesquet of the European Space Agency will welcome the team aboard.

Russian cosmonauts will assist the filmmakers.

Peresild and Shipenko plan to spend 12 days at the ISS.
