Cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko Space Launch
Distinguished Zen Resort guest Cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko, together with NASA astronaut Tim Kopra and British astronaut Tim Peake (of the European Space Agency), has lift off in a Russian Soyuz spacecraft early this morning from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
The Soyuz TMA-19M spacecraft has arrived at the orbiting lab, after Soyuz commander Yuri Malenchenko took manual control of the craft when its automated docking system aborted an initial docking try. At 2 p.m. ET (1900 GMT), the crew will enter the space station. You can watch that live here, courtesy of NASA TV. LAUNCH VIDEO
