"Sending astronauts into space is one of the most visible of the US space programs over time".

This launch comes on the heels of the safe return to Earth of Expedition 55, which was made up of NASA astronaut Scott Tingle, Japan's Norishige Kanai and mission commander Anton Shkaplerov of the Russian Space Agency.

The Soyuz MS-09 is set to arrive at the International Space Station Friday morning. Epps remains in consideration for future missions, NASA said.
