Report: Cosmonaut Captures Stunning Images Of Record-Setting Soyuz Launch From ISS – Bestmagyou


A cosmonaut aboard the International Space Station (ISS) captured stunning images of the record-setting Soyuz aircraft launch that brought three of his colleagues to the orbiting laboratory.

It was at 1.45 a.m. EDT on Wednesday when NASA astronaut Kate Rubins and Russian cosmonauts Sergey Ryzhikov and Sergey Kud-Sverchkov were transported to the ISS aboard a Soyuz MS-17 spacecraft. Apart from those watching the live coverage of the event, their colleagues who were already aboard the space station also witnessed the record-setting launch.

In a tweet, cosmonaut Ivan Vagner shared two stunning images of the launch from Kazakhstan’s Baikonur Cosmodrome. In both images, one can clearly see the spacecraft shortly after launching from the pad.

“‘Favor’ crew, congratulations on the successful launch!” Vagner wrote in the tweet. “The flight seen from space looks even cooler than from the Earth!”
