Three new crew members are on their way to the International Space Station after a successful launch from Russia’s Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. NASA’s Scott Tingle, Russia’s Anton Shkaplerov and Japan’s Norishige Kanai lifted off at 11:21 p.m. PT Saturday aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft and are to arrive at the station on Tuesday. Meanwhile, a robotic SpaceX Dragon capsule was due to rendezvous with the station overnight, delivering 4,800 pounds of cargo.
