Soyuz MS-16

Soyuz MS-16 was a Soyuz spaceflight launched on 9 April 2020, which transported three members of the Expedition 62/63 crew to the International Space Station. This flight was the first crewed launch using the Soyuz 2.1a rocket, and the first crewed Russian mission not to launch from Gagarin's Start — the pad at Baikonur Cosmodrome that was before its planned modernisation for Soyuz-2 rockets after Soyuz MS-15 — since Soyuz MS-02 in 2016.
