Hoshide begins ISS mission Yomiuri Co Jp / World news / Space http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/dy/world/T120717005221.htm

MOSCOW (Jiji Press)--Three astronauts, including Japan's Akihiko Hoshide, began a four-month mission on the International Space Station on Tuesday.

The Soyuz TMA-05M spacecraft carrying the three, which was launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome space station in Kazakhstan on Sunday, docked at the ISS on Tuesday at 4:51 a.m. GMT. They entered the space station about three hours later.
This is the second space mission for Hoshide, 43, and his first long mission in space. His first mission was aboard the U.S. space shuttle Discovery in 2008.
Hoshide is the fourth Japanese astronaut to take part in a long-stay space mission, after Koichi Wakata, 48, Soichi Noguchi, 47, and Satoshi Furukawa, 48.
After the docking, Hoshide and his two colleagues, one from the United States and the other from Russia, made contact with a mission control center near Moscow.
During the mission, Hoshide will conduct a number of experiments, such as raising killifish to study the relation between zero gravity and loss of bone mass. He will also release small satellites, including Japanese-made ones.
He plans a spacewalk in late August to carry out repairs on the ISS, becoming the third Japanese to step out of the space station.
The three astronauts will return to Earth on Nov. 12.
