Soyuz TMA-22 launches from the snowy Baikonur Cosmodrome November 13, 2011 at 11:14 p.m. EST. This was the first manned launch since July 8 this year (STS-135’s launch). The spacecraft will rendezvous with the ISS on Tuesday. Photo courtesy of spaceflightnow.com online. 


Check it out at this link above! The launch was flawless and the crew has reached orbit! Yes! 
Their solar arrays were just successfully deployed. Great news for Russia and the U.S. space programs! (Also, I wish I was there in space, too!)
