In 2014 Terry Virts launched onboard Soyuz TMA-15M from Baikonur, Kazakhstan to the International Space Station. In March of the following year, Virts assumed command of the ISS as Commander of Expedition 43.

He is also one of only 4 astronauts ever to have piloted a space shuttle, flown on a Russian Soyuz spacecraft, performed space walks and commanded the ISS.
