Russia's Soyuz TMA-07M lifts off with three new crewmates for space station

The son of a cosmonaut, a former emergency room doctor and a guitar-playing Canadian are now on their way to the International Space Station (ISS) to spend five months on board the orbiting laboratory.

Rocketing into the evening sky above the desert steppe of Kazakhstan, Roman Romanenko with the Russian space agency Roscosmos, NASA astronaut Thomas Marshburn and the Canadian Space Agency's Chris Hadfield lifted off at 7:12 a.m. EST (1212 GMT; 6:12 p.m. local) on Russia's Soyuz TMA-07M spacecraft. The trio's Soyuz FG booster departed from "Gagarin's Start," the same launch pad at the Baikonur Cosmodrome that was used for the world's first manned spaceflight in 1961.

Hatches closed, Soyuz crew ready to head home

Expedition 35 commander Chris Hadfield, Roscosmos flight engineer Roman Romanenko and NASA flight engineer Tom Marshburn are set to return to Earth Monday night (May 13) to wrap up 146 days in space, all but two spent on the International Space Station.

The departing trio bid farewell to their crewmates and boarded their Soyuz TMA-07M spacecraft, closing the hatches between the two vehicles at 2:50 p.m. CDT (1950 GMT). Undocking is scheduled at 6:08 p.m. (2308 GMT).

A deorbit burn planned at 8:37 p.m. (0137 GMT May 14) will set the Soyuz on track for a landing southeast of the town of Dzhezkazgan, Kazakhstan at 9:30 p.m. (0230 GMT; 8:30 a.m. Kazakh time, May 14).

Eight of the 12 prime Russian MI-8 helicopters flew from the staging city in Karaganda, Kazakhstan to Dzhezkazgan Monday to pre-stage for landing. Four additional helicopters will depart Karaganda two hours prior to landing to converge on the landing zone.
