The ride to the International Space Station sees astronauts launched on top of a rocket fuelled by 300 tonnes of propellant. Where on Earth do astronauts take off? When do they experience weightlessness for the first time? And how long does the trip take?
Watch in just over a minute the events from launch to docking. This video is based on a training lesson for ESA astronauts, and it features footage taken from inside the Soyuz spacecraft.
