BAIKONUR (Kazakhstan), October 23 (Itar-Tass) — The Soyuz carrier rocket with the manned spacecraft of the same name was launched to the International Space Station (ISS) from the Baikonur cosmodrome at 14:51, Moscow time, sources at the southern spaceport told Itar-Tass.
The international crew of the ISS 33/34 next long-term expedition comprising Russian cosmonauts Oleg Novitsky, Yevgeny Tarelkin and NASA astronaut Kevin Ford are on board the Soyuz TMA-06M ship. Their orbital mission will last for over four months.
This is the first space flight for the crew commander Oleg Novitsky and flight engineer Yevgeny Tarelkin, and Kevin Ford already has space flight experience. In 2009, he was the pilot of space Shuttle Discovery that delivered to the ISS the Leonardo Permanent Multipurpose Module (PMM) that is used for the storage of almost seven tonnes of research equipment, spares and supplies.
The docking of the Soyuz spacecraft with the ISS is scheduled for 16:35, Moscow time, on October 25.
