Astronauts blast off for first time since aborted mission

С Байконура запустили корабль Союз с экипажем МКС

Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko, Anne McClain of Nasa and David Saint-Jacques of the Canadian Space Agency blasted off for a six-and-a-half month mission on the International Space Station at the expected time of 1131 GMT.

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

Saint-Jacques will be the first Canadian astronaut to visit the space station since Chris Hadfield, who recorded a version of David Bowie's Space Oddity classic on board in 2013. Hague, NASA astronaut Christina Hammock Koch, and cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin are scheduled to launch from Baikonur Cosmodrome on February 28 aboard the Russian Soyuz MS-12 spacecraft.

Southwest Plane Slides off Wet Runway at Burbank Airport
It was was stopped by the Engineered Material Arresting System, created to stop an aircraft that goes off the end of a runway. At the time of the incident visibility at the airport reportedly dropped to one mile amid the heavy rain.

On October 11th, the launch of the Soyuz rocket, which had to take 2 astronauts to the ISS, was a failure.

After arriving at the space station, the astronauts will face several missions, for example, making an exploration of the hole discovered in August in one of the Soyuz ships moored to the ISS.

This is the first manned Soyuz launch since the October 11 failure that caused Aleksey Ovchinin and Nick Hague to make an emergency landing minutes after liftoff.

The three have joined Commander Alexander Gerst of ESA (European Space Agency), Serena Auñón-Chancellor of NASA, and Sergey Prokopyev of Roscosmos.

Dow Jones falls almost 800 points amid trade war, recession fears
The Dow Jones plunged nearly 800 points, while the S&P 500 was driven lower by financials, which shed nearly 4.4 per cent. The slide in bond yields, which affect interest rates on mortgages and other consumer loans, weighed on bank stocks.

That's when a rocket failure forced the Soyuz capsule carrying two astronauts to make an emergency landing.

For a while, the arrival of the three new crewmembers returned the ISS crew complement to a total of six.

Gov. Gen. Julie Payette, herself a former astronaut, was also among those watching the launch in Kazakhstan.

He'll be observing the effects of space on bone density, ocular pressure, and even the brain - all in the hopes of helping NASA figure out how to physically prepare astronauts for a potential mission to Mars. They managed to emerge safely despite a harrowing descent back to Earth.
