Soyuz blasts off for International Space Station

Russia’s Soyuz TMA-02M spacecraft has lifted off for the International Space Station (ISS) from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan.

The craft that has already separated from the Soyuz-FG carrier rocket will bring Russia’s Sergei Volkov, NASA’s Mike Fossum, and Japan’s Satoshi Furukawa to the ISS.

The docking is slated for June 10 Moscow time (late June 9 GMT).
