Not many of us will get a chance to see a rocket launch live from this angle in our lifetimes, but at least we can see the photos. European astronaut Alexander Gerst managed to photograph the launch of three new crewmembers to the International Space Station from his post aboard the orbiting laboratory. The pictures, taken Monday, show the Soyuz rocket carrying the three new space station residents as it ascends to orbit just after launch.

A Russian Soyuz rocket carrying astronauts bound for the International Space Station has taken off for the first time since a Soyuz rocket failed midair in October. American astronaut Anne McClain joined Canada’s David Saint-Jacques and Russia’s Oleg Kononenko aboard the rocket that launched from the Baikonur spaceport in the desert of Kazakhstan on Monday. The launch had unusually high stakes following the accident in October, when a Soyuz suffered a malfunction around 2 minutes after take-off, forcing an American astronaut and Russian cosmonaut to eject about 30 miles above the earth’s surface.

The International Space Station is about to get three new residents.  On Monday, NASA astronaut Anne McClain, Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques, and Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenkoof launched to the orbiting outpost aboard a Russian Soyuz rocket.  The launch marked the first crewed flight of the Soyuz since a major failure of the rocket in October when the booster malfunctioned with an astronaut and a cosmonaut aboard. The astronaut and cosmonaut got back to Earth safely after an abort was triggered by the Soyuz, blasting them away from the failing rocket. In the time between launches, Russia and NASA have investigated the cause of the accident and determined that it wouldn't be a problem during Monday's launch.

On Monday, a Russian Soyuz rocket with three astronauts aboard will depart for the International Space Station in one of the most high-stakes launches in years. If the rocket does not reach the ISS as planned, the station is likely to be left temporarily abandoned by the end of the year. Monday’s flight will be the first time a manned Soyuz rocket attempts to launch into space since one failed in mid-air in October, forcing a Russian cosmonaut and an American astronaut to eject roughly 30 miles above the earth’s surface around 2 minutes after takeoff.

European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst captured this beautiful video of the Russian Progress MS-10 cargo spacecraft launching into space from Kazakhstan's Baikonur cosmodrome. The images were taken from the European-built Cupola module with a camera set to take pictures at regular intervals. The pictures are then played quickly after each other at 8 to 16 times normal speed. The video shows around 15 minutes of the launch at normal speed.... Some notable moments in this video are: 00:07 Soyuz-FG rocket booster separation. 00:19 Core stage separation. 00:34:05 Core stage starts burning in the atmosphere as it returns to Earth after having spent all its fuel. 00:34:19 Progress spacecraft separates from rocket and enters orbit to catch up with the International Space Station.

A rocket launch is always an impressive spectacle to behold — whether you watch the live stream on the Internet or you have the privilege of witnessing the event from somewhere near the launch site. A gorgeous video shot from the International Space Station (ISS) captures a spacecraft blast off into orbit, revealing what a rocket launch looks like from the other side of the Karman Line — the commonly accepted boundary between Earth’s atmosphere and outer space. The footage —a timelapse of a Soyuz-FG rocket launch, filmed from the ISS by German astronaut Alexander Gerst of the European Space Agency (ESA) — fills in the missing pieces of the story, unveiling the unseen aspects of spaceflight that normally evade the eyes of Earth-bound observers.
