European astronaut Frank De Winne, during its training, in October 2001, in Star City facilities.
Frank De Winne has been assigned to fly to the International Space Station (ISS) in October 2002 on a Russian Soyuz launcher. He will be flight engineer on a taxi flight, a 10-day mission with the main purpose of exchanging the Soyuz capsule, which is permanently docked with the Station to serve as a rescue vehicle, if needed.
A substantial scientific experimental programme will also be conducted during the mission, including experiments led by Belgian scientists.
