Soyuz TMA-16M redocking.
08:20

On August 28, 2015 the "Soyuz TMA-16M” spacecraft was redocked from the "Poisk” (MIM-2) module to the "Zvezda” module of the International Space Station. The operation was carried out manually by Soyuz commander, Russian cosmonaut Gennadiy Padalka. During the redocking the crew also consisted of Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko and American astronauts Scott Kelly. Three other crew members – Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko, Japanese astronaut Kimiya Yui (油井 亀美也) and American astronaut Kjell Lindgren - were in the station following the redocking operation. The Soyuz TMA-16M undocked from the station at 07:12 UTC. The redocking mission lasted 18 minutes. At 07:30 UTC the spacecraft docked to the docking port of the "Zvezda” module. The docking port of the "Poisk” module is to be occupied by the Soyuz TMA-18M manned spacecraft, which is scheduled for launch from Baykonur Cosmodrome on September 02, 2015.
