Flight

Launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome. ISS Expedition 41 / 42.

Following an only six hours solo flight Soyuz TMA-14M docked to ISS on September 26, 2014. Aleksandr Samokutyayev, Yelena Serova and Barry Wilmore became the ISS Expedition 41 (together with ISS Expedition 40 crew members Maksim Surayev, Reid Wiseman and Alexander Gerst).

Only one of the Soyuz's two solar panels unfolded after the ship reached orbit. A little more than a half hour after docking, perhaps helped along by the slight jarring of impact, the stuck left-side solar array suddenly popped free.
