Krikalev and Phillips will replace the current crew, while Vittori will only remain on the station for a week and then return with Expedition 10. The Soyuz will dock on Saturday.

I am wondering just how many successful launches the Russians have had and how many soyuz capsules they have launched. Also, I was wondering how many failures they have had and cosmonauts lost. As far as I can remember they have not had a failure or loss of crew.
