Their furry friend began to float when they reached orbit nine minutes later.

A scaled-down, two-man US-Russian crew arrived at the International Space Station on Thursday, six hours after blasting off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, a NASA TV broadcast showed.

Fischer and Yurchikhin will join the three crewmates already aboard the space station to round out the outpost's Expedition 51 mission crew.

Fischer told his wife she had veteran cosmonaut Yurchikhin to thank for that.

"I learnt from the master".

The 43-year-old might want to seek some advice from fellow NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson, who is going to receive an out-of-this-world call from President Donald Trump on Monday after beating a special record.

Now on her third long-duration mission, she already holds the record for the most spacewalks conducted by a female astronaut.

It's the fifth mission to the space station for Yurchikhin, but the first for Fischer, who he says there is one aspect of space station life that you can't train for on Earth: using a zero-gravity toilet.

A rare two-person crew will launch to the International Space Station tomorrow morning
