There's nothing quite like a rocket launch to get you motivated for the day! The Soyuz MS-06 spacecraft launched with Expedition 53 crewmembers Joe Acaba of NASA, Alexander Misurkin of Roscosmos, and Mark Vande Hei of NASA from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2017, (Kazakh time) (Sept. 12, U.S. time). Acaba, Misurkin, and Vande Hei will spend approximately five and half months on the International Space Station, where they will continue work on hundreds of experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science.
