The Soyuz rocket launched at 6:12 a.m. from a facility in Kazakhstan.

The livestream above, courtesy of NASA TV's public streaming service, began coverage at 11.15pm BST straight from the Kazakhstani Cosmodrome.

A Soyuz-FG carrier rocket with a manned Soyuz MS-09 spacecraft blasted off from the Baikonur spaceport in Kazakhstan to the International Space Station (ISS) on Wednesday. This crew will be comprised of Sergey Prokopyev of Roscosmos, Serena Aunon-Chancellor of NASA and Alexander Gerst of the European Space Agency.

The daring trio are launching towards the ISS under the station's Expedition 56. Over this period, the crewmembers will be working with the Progress MS and US Dragon resupply ships, performing a program of applied researches and experiments and carrying out spacewalks (specifically, work outside the space station under the Russian program is scheduled for August 8).

The trio is set to dock with the International Space Station's Rassvet module Friday.

Just over two hours later the astronauts are expected to walk through the opening hatch and be greeted by their fellow astronauts.

The NASA live stream comes days after the USA space agency broadcasted the return of Expedition 55 Commander Anton Shkaplerov, flight engineer Scott Tingle and Norishige Kanai of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency touching back on Earth. The three arriving astronauts will remain aboard until December.
