Watch a New Group of Astronauts Launch to the International Space Station
Three crew members recently departed the International Space Station, and as a result three new astronauts are being sent up to take their place.
Six hours after launch, NASA astronauts Mark Vande Hei and Joe Acaba, along with Russian cosmonaut Alexander Misurkin, will reach the ISS which will be their home for the next five months.
The three astronauts will join Randy Bresnik from NASA, cosmonaut Sergey Ryazanskiy, and Paolo Nespoli of the European Space Agency, who are currently onboard.
Coverage of the launch begins at 4:15PM ET, while coverage of the Soyuz docking will occur at approximately 10:15PM ET.
