The Soyuz rocket carrying Fyodor Yurchikhin, Karen Nyberg and Luca Parmitano lifted away from the Baikonur Cosmodrome at 02:31 local time on Wednesday (20:31 GMT Tuesday).

Georgian Yurchikhin and American Nyberg have both been into space before. Italian Parmitano is a first-timer.

They arrived at the orbiting platform five hours and 46 minutes later.

Their Soyuz capsule was using a new flight profile that dramatically reduces the rendezvous time from the traditional two days.

Reducing time to reach the ISS from 2 days to under 6 hours is quite radical. damned.gif

İmage

Take a tour inside the Russian Soyuz, the vehicle which takes the expedition crews back & forth to the International Space Station. Astronaut Mike Fincke, a veteran of the Soyuz and shuttle, shows spokesman Rob Navias what its like inside the Soyuz.
