Full Colour Soyuz TMA-17 Crew Portrait

8" x 10" Approx full colour portrait of the Soyuz TMA-17 Crew.

The crew consists of (l-r) NASA Astroanut Timothy 'TJ' Creamer, Commander Oleg Ktov of the Russian Space Agency and Soichi Noguchi of the Japanese Space Agency (JAXA).

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.

This mission also includes the last planned docking of a Soyuz at the nadir, or Earth-facing, port of the Zarya module. The Rassvet module will be attached to Zarya's nadir port during the STS-132 mission.
