Soyuz TMA-16M is a planned spaceflight to the International Space Station in spring 2015. It will transport three members of the Expedition 43 crew to the Station. TMA-16M will be the 125th flight of a Soyuz spacecraft, the first having launched in 1967. The Soyuz will most likely remain on board the Station for the Expedition 44 increment to serve as an emergency escape vehicle. Scott Kelly and Mikhail Korniyenko will perform the first one-year stay at the Space Station, returning in Soyuz TMA-18M.
