    A Soyuz MS-18 spacecraft will carry two Russian cosmonauts and one US astronaut to the International Space Station, where Expedition 65 crew members will replace the Expedition 64 mission.

    Watch a live broadcast of a news conference held by the crew members of the upcoming ISS Expedition 65 scheduled to launch on 26 March. 

    The mission's members are Roscosmos commander Oleg Novitsky and flight engineer Pyotr Dubrov who will be accompanied by NASA flight engineer Mark Vande Hai. Three other members of the backup crew will also join the conference. 

    A Soyuz MS-17 space vehicle was earlier transferred from the station's Rassvet module to its Poisk module to free up the Rassvet for the Soyuz MS-18 craft.
