SPACE – They say in space, no one can hear you scream. That’s too bad, because a group of astronauts have a lot to cheer about. For the second time since March, a Soyuz capsule launched from Kazakhstan docked with the International Space Station in only six hours. The trip used to take two days.
The ship brought two new astronauts, one from America and one from Europe, along with one Russian cosmonaut. The trio joined up with the three space cadets who already call the ISS home.
The group will spend around six months on the ISS, with plans to conduct six spacewalks. Get this: during one of the walks, the Olympic torch will be taken outside into space.
Kind of makes your Olympic stadium roof repairs seem like small potatoes, huh, Brazil?
