The Soyuz TMA-19 spacecraft and its booster were moved to its launch pad on a railcar June 14, 2010 for final preparations prior to its launch June 16 to the International Space Station. The Soyuz will carry Expedition 24 Soyuz Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin and NASA Flight Engineers Doug Wheelock and Shannon Walker to the complex. The trio will spend six months on the station, joining Alexander Skvortsov, Mikhail Kornienko and Tracy Caldwell Dyson, who have been in orbit since April. The video footage includes the checkout of their Soyuz spacecraft in its processing hangar before it was mated to its booster on June 13.
