On November 23, the second half of Expedition 42 launched from Kazakhstan, sending a Soyuz TMA-15M rocket with three on-board astronauts toward the International Space Station. It was an uneventful launch... well, as uneventful as a rocket launch could ever possibly be, but it made for a great video. The ESA recorded a fantastic timelapse of the transfer of the spacecraft to the launchpad, and the spectacular nighttime liftoff. Take a look! It's well worth a minute and a half of your time.
