One astronaut and two cosmonauts have set off from the Russian-operated Baikonur Cosmodrome for the International Space Station, BBC says.

Strapped into the Soyuz MS-16 spacecraft are Russian cosmonauts Anatoli Ivanishin, Ivan Vagner and Nasa astronaut Chris Cassidy.

It's a strange time to be travelling, but crew member Ivanishin said where they were going was the "safest place on earth" right now.

"Although space flight carries with it a specific risk, we understand that for the next few months the International Space Station will be the safest place on earth," he said.
