After arriving at the space station, the astronauts will face several missions, for example, making an exploration of the hole discovered in August in one of the Soyuz ships moored to the ISS. "In a way, this episode reassures me about the intelligence of Soyuz and the incredible work of the research team here on Earth", explained Saint-Jacques, 48.

The launch went smoothly at the precise liftoff time of 6:31 a.m. eastern time, with the crew reporting that all was well in the critical initial minutes after liftoff - safely reaching orbit shortly afterward.

Astronaut Jenni Sidey-Gibbons echoed the message, saying Saint-Jacques was a special role model for her and other young people who may be considering a future in space.

This was the first manned voyage of the Soyuz since October 11, when a rocket carrying Russia's Aleksey Ovchinin and U.S. astronaut Nick Hague failed just minutes after blast-off, forcing the two astronauts to make a harrowing emergency landing. However, he did not get to the station because of the accident of the rocket.

Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin was also on the aborted Soyuz launch, and he's set to join Hague and NASA astronaut Christina Koch on the upcoming mission. The shield will be brought into the station and later returned to earth, Russian space officials said.

Saint-Jacques, 48, has spent years training for the six-month mission, which was originally scheduled for December 20 but was moved up after the aborted Soyuz launch.

The last Canadian astronaut to visit the space station was Chris Hadfield, who was on a five-month mission that ended in May 2013.
