Trio of astronauts blast off to international space station

The NASA live stream comes days after the USA space agency broadcasted the return of Expedition 55 Commander Anton Shkaplerov, flight engineer Scott Tingle and Norishige Kanai of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency touching back on Earth.

The research is focused on a national survey from the Pew Research Center of over 2,500 American adults. Gerst is the only astronaut of the mission that had participated in a space mission in 2014. Only 18 percent of respondents said NASA should send humans to Mars and even fewer think astronauts should return to the moon.

This issue is very relevant due to the emergence of private companies, including Elon Musk's SpaceX, that are venturing out in space.
