Volare Launches


In case you missed it:

Expedition 36/37 Soyuz Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos), NASA Flight Engineer Karen Nyberg and Flight Engineer Luca Parmitano of the European Space Agency launched on the Russian Soyuz TMA-09M spacecraft yesterday (May 29, Kazakh time or May 28, U.S. time) from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhsta.

I barely made it in time to watch the launch, I mean barely, like with 2 seconds to spare. Great launch from a great setup.

The view from inside the capsule was interesting, they have stuffed animals hanging there like those objects you see from some rear view mirrors. LOL. I spent all my time watching them and it appeared they showed the effects of acceleration and at the third stage cut-off suddenly showed they weightless. At least it looked that way.
