The Soyuz MS-02 crew, who are set to launch Wednesday (Oct. 19) to the space station, will know they have reached orbit when Russia’s next-generation spacecraft begins to float above their heads. The crew’s zero-g indicator is a toy version of ‘Federatsiya,’ Russia’s planned counterpart to the Orion crew exploration vehicle being developed by NASA. The first flight of the full-size Federatsiya transport spaceship is slated for 2023.
