Rollout of Soyuz Booster with Soyuz TMA-07M Spacecraft

At the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, the Soyuz TMA-07M spacecraft was mated to its booster rocket on Dec. 16, and the spacecraft and its booster were moved to the launch pad on a railcar Dec. 17 for final preparations before launch to the International Space Station on Dec. 19. The Soyuz TMA-07M will carry Expedition 34/35 Soyuz Commander Roman Romanenko, Flight Engineer Tom Marshburn of NASA and Flight Engineer Chris Hadfield of the Canadian Space Agency to the orbital outpost. The trio will spend five months on the laboratory, joining station Commander Kevin Ford of NASA and Russian cosmonauts Oleg Novitskiy and Evgeny Tarelkin, who have been in orbit since late October.
