The only female cosmonaut in Russia will go into space next year on a rocket Ilona Mask

Earlier, the head of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, already announced the Roscosmos-NASA cross-flight program, and now details have emerged on this score: as the head of the department said on Twitter, Anna Kikina will go to the ISS next fall as part of the crew of the American SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft.

Which NASA astronaut will fly on the Soyuz MS has not yet been announced. But the corresponding statement must be expected from SpaceX or Elon Musk. Anna Kikina is the fifth Russian female cosmonaut, so far she has no experience in space flight.

Interestingly, back in the spring it was said that Kikina would go to the ISS in the fall of 2022, but then it was just about a flight on the domestic Soyuz MS spacecraft: she joined the crew of the 68th expedition to the ISS together with Sergei Prokopyev and Dmitry Petelin. But now Anna’s delivery vehicle into space will be different – Elon Musk’s rocket.
