Soyuz MS-15 is a Soyuz spaceflight planned for September 2019.[1] It will transport three members of the Expedition 61 crew to the International Space Station. MS-15 will be the 144th flight of a Soyuz spacecraft. If the preceding flight Soyuz MS-14 goes well it will be the last flight of Soyuz-FG launcher.
