NASA astronaut Kate Rubins will rocket to the International Space Station for the second time on October 14, but the mission is more than just a personal milestone for the 42-year-old space traveler. On November 1, Rubins and her crewmates’ presence on the International Space Station will make a record of 20 continuous years of human beings in space. Rubins will be joined in the mission by two Russian cosmonauts, Sergey Ryzhikov and Sergey Kud-Sverchkov. Like Rubins, Ryzhikov has traveled to space once before, but the mission will be the first space flight for Kud-Sverchkov. The trio will leave Earth’s atmosphere from Kazakhstan‘s Baikonur Cosmodrome at approximately 2:00 a.m. Eastern Time in a Russian Soyuz spacecraft. The team will then board the International Space Station a few hours later.
