International Space Station Mission Decal - Soyuz TMA-16
The Soyuz TMA-16 was a manned flight to and from the International Space Station (ISS). It transported two members of the Expedition 21 crew and a Canadian entrepreneur from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to the ISS. TMA-16 is the 103rd flight of a Soyuz spacecraft, the first flight launching in 1967. The Soyuz spacecraft will most likely remain docked with the space station for the remainder of the Expedition 22 increment to serve as an emergency escape vehicle. The launch of Soyuz TMA-16 marked the first time since 1969 that three Soyuz craft were in orbit simultaneously.
Guy Laliberté, founder and CEO of Cirque du Soleil, was a spaceflight participant aboard TMA-16 during its flight to the ISS. He returned on board the Soyuz TMA-14 spacecraft left as an emergency vehicle during that previous flight. The Soyuz TMA-16 flight spacecraft is therefore scheduled to fly back to Earth with only two crewmembers.
