With the space shuttle getting near to retirement the International Space Station will have to rely on the Russians for new crew members and provisions. A Soyuz spacecraft will be launched towards the ISS. One of the passengers will be Guy Laliberté, the founder of Cirque du Soleil. The rocket was brought to the launchpad yesterday. Contrary to NASA the Russians don't use a specially designed crawler for this, but good old steam power.
