Caption: OasISS mission launch. This mission (the Soyuz TMA-15 mission) was launched on a Soyuz-FG rocket on 27 May 2009 from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. It carried a crew of three to the International Space Station (ISS): ESA astronaut Frank De Winne, Russian cosmonaut Roman Romanenko and Canadian Space Agency astronaut Robert Thirsk. The name of the OasISS mission was chosen by the European Space Agency following a public competition, and saw De Winne become the first European ISS commander. De Winne also went in his role as goodwill ambassador for UNICEF Belgium, supporting campaigns about global water resources.
