September 13, 2017 at 00:17:02 Moscow time from the Baikonur cosmodrome a launch vehicle with the transport manned spacecraft Soyuz MS-06 was successfully launched. Onboard the Soyuz MS-06 are members of the long expedition International Space Station - 53/54. The commander of the spacecraft is the cosmonaut of the Federal Space Agency of Russia Alexander Misurkin and NASA astronauts Mark Vande Hei and Joseph Acaba.








Why is the video on the 12th and the flight took place on the 13th? I think that this was due to the difference between the time of the Youtube channel and the Moscow time

Forget the dates. Why is most of the launch video CGI and not a real life video capture? Also why is the small satellite ball in the cabin not laying parallel to the astronots torso when the rocket goes parallel to the earth?

Default Rocket man says "spasibo"

For our non-Russian readers:

The little Sputnik model inside Soyuz was for Sputnik's 60th anniversary, October 4, 2017.

The Soyuz MS-06 mission blasted off from the same launch pad at Baikonur, Kazakhstan as Sputnik and Yuri Gagarin, as have all Russian manned space launches. And they are using the same basic rocket as Sputnik and Gagarin, developed from the world's first ICBM, R-7 Semyorka. It has launched over 600 times since 1957.

Although this was a night launch and was unseen in darkness, the four outboard booster rockets separated at +118 seconds in a pattern called the Korolev Cross.

Here in the US, the Kennedy Space Center in Florida has a lot of history, too. I would sure love to visit there someday. Being able to actually go into space would be even better, of course.
