To the frontiers of space and back
Soyuz rockets are launched in the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan and complete their journey into space in three stages. At a height of 45 km, the booster of the first stage is jettisoned. This is followed by the fairing at a height of around 85 km.
There are no fixed boundaries in space; rather, the transition between the Earth's atmosphere and space is fluid. The Fédération Aéronautique International (FAI), the International Air Sports Federation, has adopted Karaman's definition, setting the boundary at 100 km. For the US Air Force (USAF), space begins at 80 km. According to this definition, the Soyuz fairing components have crossed the boundary into space. These models can be idenitified by their white or white-red faces and the marking "Soyuz Fairing".
Soyuz MS-06 was the name of a flight mission in which a Soyuz-series Russian spacecraft travelled to the International Space Station (ISS). It was the 52nd visit of a Soyuz spacecraft to the ISS and the 158th flight in the Soyuz programme.
