Russia have returned to the ISS with a manned Soyuz launch from Kazakhstan carrying three astronauts.
It is the first manned space flight attempted by Russia since a similar Soyuz craft crashed back in August. After an impressive launch the astronauts gave the thumbs-up and reported that everything had gone to plan. "We don't have any black thoughts. We have faith in our equipment," said astronaut Anton Shkaplerov.
