The Soyuz MS-02 launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to the ISS at 4:05 a.m. EDT Wednesday, Oct. 19 (2:05 p.m. Baikonur time). At the time of launch, the space station was flying 252 statute miles over the south Atlantic, east of Brazil. NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough and Roscosmos cosmonauts Sergey Ryzhikov and Andrey Borisenko are now safely in orbit. Over the next 2 days, the trio will orbit the Earth 34 times before docking to the space station's Poisk module at 5:59 a.m. Friday, Oct. 21.

70 years ago today

The photograph was taken on the 24 October 1946 by a camera on board a US Army rocket that launched from White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico.

The US had employed a group of surrendered German rocket scientists towards the end of the Second World War, who used a Nazi missile to carry a Devry 35-millimetre camera to capture the image.

The Soyuz spacecraft moved into vertical position, on 14 November 2016, at the Baikonur Cosmodrome launch pad 1, in Kazakhstan.

ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet, NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson and commander Oleg Novitsky will be launched 17 November for a six-month mission on the International Space Station.






Old stuff:

A team of NASA, Orbital Sciences Corporation, Aerojet Rocketdyne and Lockheed Martin engineers conducted a hotfire test of Aerojet Rocketdyne AJ26 engine E-15 on the E-1 Test Stand at NASA's Stennis Space Center on January 17, 2014. The AJ26 engines are used to power the first stage of Orbital's Antares rocket for its supply missions to the ISS.
