Two more lift off for the International Space Station

Two people blasted off into the atmosphere. They won’t stop until they reach space. It will take them six hours to reach the International Space Station. An astronaut and a cosmonaut are on board, and the third seat has been left unoccupied.

The two were sent up in a Russian rocket from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to reach the ISS 250 miles above Earth. Russia is sending up fewer people until it sends up a science laboratory.

Once aboard the space station they will join record-breaking astronaut Peggy Whitson, who has spent more time in space than any other U.S. astronaut.
