Watch ISS Expedition 36 Soyuz TMA-09M Launch Live Right Here
The second half of ISS Expedition 36 is all set to head to the International Space Station today at 4:31PM ET, and NASA’s got a fancy live stream going. If you feel like watching a spacecraft carrying Karen Nyberg, Fyodor Yurchikhin, and Luca Parmitano launch itself into space from the comfort of the viewing device of your choice, all you have to do is, well, watch.
Nyberg, Yurchikhn, and Parmitano aren’t only the second half of ISS Expedition 36, they’re also the first half of Expedition 37. Yurchikhin will be the one assuming command of the space station when Expedition 37 begins, so he’s pretty much Expedition 37’s Chris Hadfield. It unfortunately appears that Yurchikhin doesn’t have Twitter, at least according to NASA’s page on the group, so maybe he won’t be Expedition 37’s Chris Hadfield.
