The latest manned flight to the International Space Station (ISS) launched Tuesday at 5:35 PM from Kazakhstan, and the spacecraft is expected to dock with the ISS Zvezda service module tonight. The three person Expedition 24 crew aboard the TMA-19 spacecraft includes Doug Wheelock, Shannon Walker, and Fyodor Yurchikhin. For more information, click here.

A brief reminder, there is just one more ISS visit scheduled for a shuttle, so reliance on cooperation with Soviet and private industry spacecraft will be the way crews and supplies for the ISS are exchanged.
