Hague tweeted on Wednesday that he will attempt another trip to the International Space Station on Feb. 28.
He was supposed to go earlier this year, but he was forced to abort his launch in October in a Russian Soyuz spacecraft.
Hague will be joined by another American astronaut, Christina Koch, and Russian Cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin.
Excited to announce that I’ve been granted a second chance to fly to the @Space_Station! I’ll be launching with Alexey and @Astro_Christina on Feb. 28, 2019. Thank you all for your continued support. Looking forward to the journey ahead�� https://t.co/7nYvWaUpgH— Nick Hague (@AstroHague) December 5, 2018
