The point in time is when he is seated, awaiting his turn for the leak-check of his suit, (helmet and gloves will be fitted, hence his skull cap is ready, and his blue ventilation box is by his side). His commander (Sergei Prokopyev) is undergoing the test, his ...

Just to have an idea of the order of magnitude: "Time dilation explains why two working clocks will report different times after different accelerations. For example, time goes slower at the ISS, lagging approximately 0.01 seconds for every 12 Earth months passed." says https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_dilation Similarly, between Earth surface (1 ...
