An uncrewed Soyuz spacecraft is on its way to the International Space Station after a launch Thursday night. The Soyuz-2.1a rocket launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome at 7:24 pm EST (0024 GMT Friday) and put the Soyuz MS-23 spacecraft into orbit nine minutes later. The spacecraft is scheduled to dock with the station at 8:01 pm EST Saturday (0101 GMT Sunday). It will replace Soyuz MS-22, which suffered a coolant leak in December from what Russian officials say was a micrometeoroid impact. Soyuz MS-22 will undock without a crew and return to Earth in March.
