    Earlier in the day, the first manned mission after the October accident blasted off from the Baikonur space center to the International Space Station (ISS).

    The Soyuz MS-11 is docking the International Space Station after the spacecraft successfully separated from the Soyuz-FG rocket earlier in the day.

    Cosmonaut of Roscosmos Oleg Kononenko, astronauts of NASA and the Canadian space agency Ann McClain and David Saint-Jacques make up the mission that is planned to last for 194 days.

    On October 11, a rocket carrying Russian cosmonaut Alexei Ovchinin and NASA astronaut Nick Hague malfunctioned about two minutes after the liftoff, sending their escape capsule into a steep fall back to Earth.
