    NASA astronauts Mark Vande Hei and Joe Acaba and Russian cosmonaut Alexander Misurkin blasted off atop a Russian Soyuz rocket from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 5:17 p.m. EDT (2127 GMT). Packed tightly inside their Soyuz MS-06 space capsule, the trio began a 6-hour flight to the ISS after a flawless launch sequence. “Everything is nominal on board [and] the crew is doing fine,” a translator for Russia’s Mission Control Center in Moscow repeatedly announced during a live webcast as the Soyuz MS-06 soared into the sky.
