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.
