Soyuz TMA-05M set for Launch
The Soyuz TMA-05M crew consisting of Sunita (Suni) Williams, Yuri Malenchenko and Aki Hoshide is set to launch at 8:40 a.m. Kazakhstan time (10:40 p.m. EDT/4:40 a.m. CEST). The launch will be covered live by NASA TV from 9:30 p.m. EDT tonight.
The launch today (or tomorrow, depending on where you are) coincides with the the launch of the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project 37 years ago.
Godspeed to the crew, may they safely reach their home in the sky.
This is the first launch I won’t be able to live-blog since starting this blog, as I’m working tonight. :(
