It still amazes me that it can take nearly 2 days to fly, in a space rocket, up into space approx 250 miles.
Of course the ISS is in orbit, travelling at a good few thousand miles an hour so the Soyuz takes time to get up to speed and then catch up.
But I've seen that the Russians have previously taken a "quicker" route in the recent past....so I wonder why they don't do that more often?
Plus "2 days" in a cramped Soyuz, with little space (sic) to move around inside?....one wonders about DVT plus how do they manage "toilet breaks" with a woman on board? Maybe a few diapers placed inside the space suits?
