Soyuz TMA-10 launch (NASA) A Soyuz spacecraft carrying two Russian cosmonauts and an American space tourist lifted off Saturday from the Baikonur Cosmodrome on a mission to the International Space Station. The Soyuz TMA-10 spacecraft lifted off on schedule at 1:31 pm EDT (1731 GMT) Saturday and entered low Earth orbit nine minutes later.
