New Crew and Cargo Ship Prepare to Join Station

www.nasa.gov said:

The International Space Station awaits the docking of a new trio of Expedition 37 crew members and the arrival of Cygnus, Orbital Sciences’ first commercial cargo craft.

Soyuz Commander Oleg Kotov and Flight Engineers Mike Hopkins and Sergey Ryazanskiy are at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, counting down to their 4:58 p.m. EDT liftoff aboard a Soyuz TMA-10M spacecraft on Wednesday. They will complete the Expedition 37 crew when they dock to the Poisk mini-research module just four orbits later at 10:48 p.m.
