Today at 04:14 GMT, the Russian Soyuz spacecraft, carrying two Russian and one American astronaut on board blasted off from Kazakhstan's snow-covered steppes to take its passengers to the International Space Station.

Once safely in orbit, the three astronauts gave a thumbs-up signal to cameras on board the craft and said: "Everything is normal and we are feeling fine". Applause broke out at the mission control centre in a northern Moscow suburb, reports BBC.
