Soyuz launch of Poisk module (RSC Energia) A Soyuz rocket launched a new docking module for the International Space Station on Tuesday. The Soyuz rocket lifted off from Baikonur, Kazakhstan at 9:22 am EST (1422 GMT) Tuesday and placed the Mini-Research Module 2 or Poisk module into orbit. The module, attached to the service module of a Progress spacecraft, will dock automatically with the zenith port of the Zvezda module of the station on Thursday. Similar in design to the Pirs module already attached to the station, Poisk is designed to serve primarily as a docking module and airlock, and will also host experiments.
