The incredible view of a rocket launch ... from space

Almost two months after a rocket malfunction forced NASA and the Russian space agency Roscosmos to abort the launch of a Soyuz mission, a new crew blasted off on Monday for the International Space Station and arrived safe and sound.

Kazakhstan-A Soyuz rocket carrying Russian, American and Canadian astronauts took off from Kazakhstan and reached orbit on Monday, in the first manned mission since a failed launch in October.

It is reported by Roscosmos on Monday, December 3, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to the Correspondent.

This trip is a first for McClain and Saint-Jacques, while Kononenko will feel at home - it's his fourth expedition to the ISS.

The crewmembers of the manned Soyuz MS-11 spacecraft that docked to the International Space Station (ISS) yesterday evening has entered the station after pressure inside the spaceship and the station was equalized, a spokesman for the mission control center said.

A few minutes after their rocket lifted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome, Russian space agency Roscomos announced that the capsule was "successfully launched into orbit".

Barley two months after a Soyuz made an emergency landing, the Russian spacecraft has safely brought one astronaut each from the USA and Canada and a cosmonaut from Russia, to the International Space Station (ISS).

HBO has released the first tease for the upcoming final season of the hit fantasy series Game of Thrones . If the result is dragonglass, it's worth noting that's one of the few ways White Walkers can be killed .

It was the first manned Russian launch since a Soyuz rocket carrying NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Roscosmos' Alexei Ovchinin failed two minutes into its flight on October 11.

In March, the station will again return to a full complement of six crew members when they are joined for Expedition 59 by NASA astronauts Nick Hague and Christina Koch and Alexey Ovchinin of Roscosmos.

He recently joked Russian Federation would send a mission to the Moon to "verify" whether or not NASA lunar landings ever took place. In a call with his family and others at the Russian launch site, Saint-Jacques revealed his first impressions of outer space so far.

But most importantly, this is the crew that will handle the first flight tests for NASA's Commercial Crew program.

Since the mishap, four successful Soyuz launches have been conducted to clear the path for the crew's launch. That mission will launch to the ISS Feb. 28 and return in October.

Those plans were expected to change after the Soyuz MS-10 abort, as Al Mansouri would have returned on Soyuz MS-10, with Hague and Ovchinin, after a brief stay on the station had that mission flown as planned.
