I believe Krikalev was the first to do all four when STS-60 landed in 1994.

Soyuz TMA-07M has just landed, so Chris Hadfield and Thomas Marshburn are now on the list.

Interesting bit of trivia -- Leopold Eyharts flew two missions in four different vehicles. He flew up/down in both the Soyuz and shuttle, but always in a different spacecraft. I think he is the only one on the list who did that.
  • up on TM-27 and down on TM-26 in 1998
  • up on STS-122 and down on STS-123 in 2008

We were talking to Lu about this — it's been said he was the first NASA astronaut to launch and land in a Soyuz. However, Lu said he was the first flight engineer to launch on a Soyuz — essentially, he was sitting in a different seat than Thagard and Shepard. Was I imagining this part of the conversation since I had just two hours of sleep beforehand?

Thagard and Shepherd are not on the list because they never landed in the Soyuz spacecraft.

On Thagard's fifth flight, he launched on Soyuz TM-21 and landed on STS-71. On Shepherd's fourth flight, he launched on Soyuz TM-31 and landed on STS-102.

Thagard and Shepherd sat in the right seat on their Soyuz flights.

On Ed Lu's third flight, he launched and landed on Soyuz TMA-2. During launch, I believe he sat in the left seat (right seat was empty), and during landing he sat in the right seat.

That's what it was - Lu was a left-seater, while Thagard and Shepard were a right-seater on launch.

However, the right seat on TMA-2 was not empty on launch. There was not a person sitting there, but the loss of Columbia meant that the seat was taken not by a person but by a container with various parts and supplies, Lu said.

Soyuz TMA-2 landed with Yuri Malenchenko, Ed Lu and Pedro Duque onboard. Lu and Duque made the list when TMA-2 landed.

Malenchenko had made the list when his previous flight (STS-106) landed. STS-106 was the second flight for both Malenchenko and Lu.

Malenchenko went on to fly two more missions after TMA-2. He is scheduled to fly his sixth mission on Soyuz TMA-19M in November 2015. His first flight was way back in 1994.

About a week after that Soyuz TMA-2 launch, the Expedition 6 crew landed on Soyuz TMA-1. They landed on TMA-1 instead of STS-114 because of the STS-107 accident.

Ken Bowersox was in the left Soyuz seat for the landing. Don Pettit was in the right seat. Cosmonaut Nikolai Budarin was in the center seat, and would have been on the list had he landed on STS-114. Pettit made the list years later when TMA-03M launched in 2011.

Had the Expedition 7 crew launched onboard STS-114, who would have been on that increment with Malenchenko and Lu?
