NASA and Roscosmos astronauts lift off to the International Space Station
Face to ground
And we see that first umbilical tower separating, that means we're 35 seconds away from launch.
And there goes the second tower so we are 15 seconds away from launch.
We're going to see the boosters at the bottom light up And as their thrust builds that eventually over come.
And lift off.
Cassie, Ignition and Wagner on their way to the international Space station.
15 seconds in to the flight, all parameters are nominal.
We confirm on board all parameters are nominal.
20 seconds in to launch Pressures are working nominally, the crew is feeling fine.
[SOUND] All parameters for the vehicle are nominally.
The crew is feeling fine.
Thrust are working nominally and The Beagle is nominal.
Getting good, continuous calls from the crew and the ground, everything with the vehicle looking nominal.
The first stage powering the Soyuz upward, delivering 930,000 pounds of thrust from the four strap-on boosters and that single-core engine.
Pitch, roll, and yaw at 60 minutes into flight.
Yaw, pitch, roll, the attitude or which way it's pointing, we're hearing all those parameters.
Or the status of it, nominal.
70 seconds into flight.
Everything's fine with the vehicle on our side, we confirm we're feeling good.
Again, this first stage, going to continue to burn for just about two minutes into the flight.
So just under a minute to go on the first stage.
And if flights, thrust is working nominally.
We confirm and we're feeling well on board.
So just continuing to retrieve review already traveling well in excess of 101,100 miles per hour.
And seeing the quarry off cross there's those strap on boosters separate the first stage separating right on time.
We also confirm literally in separate.
Their job done they drop weight and altitude of about 28 statute miles so he's traveling at about 3300 miles an hour.
Legal stabilization is nominal.
Everything's fine on board.
And with the first stage in the launch escape tower now jettisoned, being powered by that second stage, the core stage.
The jettisoning of the no.
Trout jettison and getting some views now from the so you spacecraft itself looking back towards the Soyuz rocket you have a solar array right in front of your view there.
The launch route has been jettison so you spacecraft now exposed.
To flight the vehicle is fine And we are feeling well on board.
This is good.
Everything looking good with that core stage the second stage
Minute 56 feet in length 13 and a half a diameter has single engine with four fuel chambers provides in between 170,000 to 222,000 pounds of thrust depending on their altitude for three minutes and 28 seconds of operation.
Again the second stage is gonna continue to burn we're looking for a second stage shut down about four minutes 30 seconds after launch.
Parameters of the vehicle are nominal.
And we can find a way of feeling well.
[UNKNOWN] 230 seconds into flight.
The vehicle is stable.
We copy and we confirm everything is nominal onboard.
So we're a little over four minutes since launch again we'll be looking for that shutdown, separation coming up in about 20 seconds.
As that separation occurs, the third stage will begin firing.
It's called a hot stage technique.
That third stage will ignite while the second is still attached.
And standing by for a second stage shutdown.
We confirm separation of stage two.
We see it as well, everything's nominal on board.
And we have confirmation second stage shut down and separated, and you saw a piece fly off.
That was the third stage's lower skirt jettison that was targeted to come off at 4 minutes 56 seconds into launch.
We're already past 5 minutes and 20 seconds.
Third stage now going to continue to burn until we're at our orbital insertion.
So the initial orbit of the Soyuz spacecraft that's expected to come in about eight minutes and 46 seconds at shutdown, and then the separation coming just four seconds later.
Into flight and the thrusters are working nominally.
We confirm and everything's nominal onboard.
So right now so he's been propelled into orbit by the single engine of the third stage providing 67,000 pounds of thrust, going to continue to burn until shut down.
Coming in just under three minutes from now.
360 seconds into flight, your peach and roll all nominal.
Copy and we are feeling well on board.
Still getting great updates from the crew.
Antoli nation talking to the ground, everyone feeling well on board.
Your pitch roll, the engines all performing nominally.
That's the word we want to keep hearing.
Means everything's going normally according to the plan.
6 minutes 35 seconds since liftoff
390 seconds into flight, all Control systems for the vehicle are working nominally, and we confirm we are fine on board, copy.
510 seconds into flight.
Your pitch and roll are all nominal, get ready for The stage separation.
So we'll see the engines cut off, and once the vehicle separates, it usually gives the crew a bit of a jolt, and then the [UNKNOWN] will be flying free.
We see the third stage separating there, and we can see it dropping away now.
Third stage separation confirmed.
Congratulations guys, you are in Orbit.
I am handing you over to the Mission Control Moscow.
After a successful separation from that third stage.
So with that Chris Cassidy Antony even Ation and Avant Wagner are in outer space.
Twenty third, three, two, seven.
Congratulations guys in such a successful launch, good luck.
