Rocket docks at space station A Russian-made Soyuz rocket with a three-man crew arrived at the International Space Station yesterday in the first manned mission since a failed launch in October.

The Soyuz MS-11 carried Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko, Canadian David Saint-Jacques and NASA's Anne McClain from Earth to dock with the ISS later on Monday.

A Soyuz spacecraft with three crew onboard blasted off to the International Space Station (ISS) Monday.

This is the first spaceflight for both McClain and Saint-Jacques and the fourth trip to the space station for Kononenko.

The hatch was opened at 1:37 a.m. (1940 GMT; 2:40 p.m. EST) while the station was flying over the southern coast of Yemen.

The veteran said the crew would conduct a spacewalk on December 11 as part of an investigation into a mysterious hole that has caused an air leak on the ISS.

The launch, which took place from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan as the sun was setting, was the first crewed launch since an anomaly during booster separation sent two astronauts falling back to Earth in an emergency landing on October 11.

The ISS space laboratory orbits the Earth at roughly 28,000 kph.

Russian Federation suspended all manned space launches pending an investigation before giving the green light November 1.

Space officials breathed a sigh of relief after observing the flawless launch, with October's rocket failure still on the minds of many. They managed to emerge safely despite the harrowing ordeal.

Russian investigators blamed that malfunction, which occurred as the first and second stages of a booster rocket separated, on a damaged sensor.

Former Premier League star turned pundit Jermaine Jenas thinks Mourinho's time is up. United could only manage an underwhelming 2-2 draw with Southampton yesterday.

Russian space officials took measures to prevent the repeat of such a rocket failure.

They escaped unharmed but the failed launch - the first such incident in Russia's post-Soviet history - raised concerns about the state of the Soyuz programme.

NASA astronaut Anne McClain, David Saint-Jacques of the Canadian Space Agency and Oleg Kononenko of the Russian space agency Roscosmos lifted off as scheduled at 5:31 p.m. (1131 GMT; 6:31 a.m. EST) Monday from the Russian-leased Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

The Soyuz spacecraft is now the only vehicle that can ferry crews to the space station, but Russian Federation stands to lose that monopoly in the coming years with the arrival of SpaceX's Dragon and Boeing's Starliner crew capsules.
