Soyuz MS-01 is a 2016 Soyuz spaceflight to the International Space Station.[3] Originally scheduled for launch in June 2016, the mission successfully lifted off from Kazakhstan on July 7, 2016.[4] It is transporting three members of the Expedition 48 crew to the International Space Station. MS-01 is the 130th flight of a Soyuz spacecraft, and the first with the new version Soyuz MS. The crew consists of a Russian commander, a Japanese flight engineer, and an American flight engineer.

On 6 June 2016, the launch was rescheduled to July 2016 due to flaws in the control system that could affect the docking to the ISS.[5] The spacecraft was successfully docked on 9 July 2016.[2]
