On Wednesday September 25, at 2058 UTC (1658 EDT) from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan a Soyuz-FG rocket TMA-10M (flight 36S) will be lifting off from Launch Pad 1 – Launcher 5. 36S will carry three crew members of Expedition 37/38 to the International Space Station (ISS). The crew will dock with the
Russian Mini Research Module-2 (MRM-2) Zenith Module and that capsule will
remain there for approximately 6 months as a crew escape vehicle.
This will be the 119th flight of the Soyuz and will, as the last few have been, be a four orbit (6hr) launch to docking flight.
