Spaceflight Now :

Next space station crew set for launch Monday

Rolling out to Yuri Gagarin's launch pad as the 50th anniversary of human spaceflight nears, the next Soyuz rocket is poised for launch carrying an American astronaut and two Russian cosmonauts to the International Space Station.



The Soyuz TMA-21 capsule and its three-stage booster traveled horizontally by railcar, journeying along a winding route from the integration facility at Site 254 to the same historic pad used since the dawn of the space age at the Baikonur Cosmodrome.

Hydraulic pistons lifted the rocket upright on the pad and gantry swing arms moved into position to enclose the vehicle. Technicians on four levels hooked up electrical and telemetry cables between the rocket and pad.

Ron Garan, Andrey Borisenko and Alexander Samokutyaev will ride the rocket into orbit for a half-year mission aboard the orbiting laboratory, launching Monday at 6:18 p.m. EDT (2218 GMT). They are headed for a Wednesday arrival at the space station with docking around 7:18 p.m. EDT (2318 GMT).



Soyuz TMA-21 crew of Ron Garan (USA), Alexander Samokutyaev (RU) and Andrey Borisenko (RU).

FTFY:
http://www.federalspace.ru/main.php?id=2&nid=11598&lang=en

May I suggest adding the language part to Roscosmos URLs (lang=[en|ru]), like in the example above? The default language for the site is Russian (with no cookies set), and some people may have Russian language set in the cookies for it too (like me if I last time browsed it in Russian, SiberianTiger), and Russian news with the same "nid" are different than English (for example, this one was from July 7, 2010).

Guys, thank you for creating and maintaining this thread. I have much personal business to settle down at the moment, and limited Internet access. It's great that many people are watching this launch!

I will pop out when I can.

It has been posted before (thanks orb), but direct links weren't given, so here they are, they are both HD channels where the launch will be broadcasted.
