(Newser) – A Russian rocket blasted off from a space center in southern Kazakhstan today, transporting a NASA astronaut, Tracy Caldwell Dyson, and two Russian cosmonauts to the International Space Station. The team will join a Russian commander, a NASA astronaut, and a Japanese astronaut on board the station when they dock on Sunday, notes the AP. "We are ready," Caldwell said, in Russian, just before the launch.
