VIDEO: 3 astronauts successfully launched to space station

TEHRAN, Apr. 10 (MNA) – Russian space agency Roscosmos cosmonauts Oleg Novitskiy and Pyotr Dubrov and NASA astronaut Mark Vande Hei successfully launched to the space station from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

 According to CNN, the launch was aired live on NASA's TV channel and website, with liftoff right on schedule at 3:42 a.m. ET. The first, second, and third stage separations were smooth, leaving the spacecraft flying free with its deployed solar array and antennae.

The International Space Station is the place to be in April. Multiple arrivals and departures this month make the floating laboratory seem more like a hotel.
