Soyuz TMA-17 International Space Station Mission Decal
Soyuz TMA-17 is a manned space flight to the International Space Station (ISS). It was launched on December 20, 2009 and transported three members of the ISS Expedition 22 crew to the station. TMA-17 is the 104th flight of a Soyuz spacecraft. The Soyuz will most likely remain on board the space station for the remainder of the Expedition 22 increment to serve as an emergency escape vehicle.
This mission marks the first Soyuz launch in the month of December for almost 19 years. The prior Soyuz launch in the month of December was Soyuz TM-11 on December 2, 1990.
