LIFTOFF! NASA astronauts Mark Vande Hei, Joe Acaba and Russian cosmonaut Alexander Misurkin, left Earth at 5:17 p.m. EDT to head toward the International Space Station (@iss) for a five-month stay. They will arrive at their new home in space at 10:57 p.m.
There are currently three people living on the space station, soon to be joined by the three crew members that launched today. While living on this unique orbiting platform, they conduct important research and science that will not only help us travel deeper into space, but also benefits life here on Earth.
