And that feeling of going to the second stage was just fantastic. A beautiful journey". This is what cosmonaut Raja Chari said when docking with Iss.
On board with him three other astronauts: Tom Marshburn and Kayla Barron of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the German or Matthias Maurer of the European Space Agency (ESA).
