Nice Rocket, Mate!

The Soyuz spacecraft was encapsulated in the third stage of its booster and the rocket's segments were mated Nov. 2 and Nov. 4 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Preparations continued for the launch of Expedition 38/39 Soyuz Commander Mikhail Tyurin of the Russian Federal Space Agency, NASA Flight Engineer Rick Mastracchio and Flight Engineer Koichi Wakata of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency on Nov. 7, Kazakh time.
