Smoke Trails From Soyuz Launch (NASA, International Space Station, 10/23/12)
– Editor’s note: this view makes me want to hum the theme from "I Dream of Jeannie." 🙂 Happy Thursday!
This view of Earth’s horizon, showing smoke trails from the launch of the Soyuz TMA-06M spacecraft, was photographed by an Expedition 33 crew member on the International Space Station. The Soyuz, with Expedition 33 crew members Soyuz Commander Oleg Novitskiy, Flight Engineer Kevin Ford of NASA, and Flight Engineer Evgeny Tarelkin of Roscosmos onboard, launched at 4:51 p.m. Kazakhstan time (5:51 a.m. CDT) on Oct. 23, 2012, from Baikonur, Kazakhstan.
