Mission highlights

14th manned mission to ISS.

Soyuz TM-33 is a Russian astronaut-transporting spacecraft that was launched by a Soyuz-U rocket from Baikonur at 08:59 UT on 21 October 2001. It carried two Russian and one French astronaut to the International Space Station (ISS). It docked with the ISS at 10:44 UT on 23 October. This new crew spent eight days on the ISS, and returned on the older Soyuz TM-32 at 04:59 UT on 31 October. The new Soyuz remained docked as a lifeboat craft for the then current crew of three (two Russian and one American) astronauts.
