Soyuz TMY-17M was launched to the International Space Station ISS

On July 22 2015 the Soyuz TMY-17M was launched to the International Space Station ISS together with astronauts Oleg Kononenko, Kjell Lindgren and Kimiya Yui.

Also on board was the force-feedback joystick from the Kontur2 Project that SENSODRIVE had significantly assisted in developing.
By using this joystick the ISS astronauts are able to control telepresent robots on Earth.
