In central and cold-hearted Kazakhstan, Russian-Russian Soyuz will take over the Canadian David Saint-Jacques in his orbit, and has pulled out of his railroad's position last Monday.
The "Offset" is one of the routines of the mission that Saint-Jacques and two other astronauts will take to the International Space Station.
The event, one of the traditions, gathered hundreds of spectators early this morning, the Baikonur Kosmodrome Medieval and Dramatically Scattered Landscapes.
Early in the morning, the procession began with the spacecraft that came from the hanging assembly, when the four giant motors came out. When the slow train station arrived two hours later, the rocket entered vertical position with the help of a giant hydraulic arm.
Wonderful & # 39; rollout
"It was wonderful," said Josh Kutry of Canada, elected to two new Canadian astronaut candidates in 2017.
It is part of a large representation sent by the Canadian Space Agency.
"It's wonderful to see that the witch's exit and railroad paths are fortunate enough to bring down the pilgrims and stagger travelers and finally piled on passengers."
According to tradition, cosmonauts and astronauts do not participate. Earlier this week, Saint-Jacques and his two colleagues, Anne McClain and Russians Oleg Kononen went to the rocket and tested the capsule equipment for the last time.
Saint-Jacques is expected to host a conference on Baikonur Sunday in the latest news, but he has relied on technology in previous conversations and said he wants to start his career.
The Russian Orthodox priest will officially bless the rocket Sunday, and the crew will obtain a separate blessing, a few hours before, from 6:31 p.m. to Monday.
"I'm proud of David and I'm happy," said Kutryk.

Launch pad tourists
The wife of Saint Jacques, Vé ronique, and two children with three children, and Soyuz entered her last position.
Canadian flags were waving between Michael, Joe and Patricia Olson in Williams Lake, B.C.
Michael Olson says that two years of inspiration for Saint-Jacques, they decided to fly south of Central Asia.
"I have always been interested in space travel," he said.
"[When] We met David, we told him that we would be launching it, so we are meeting a promise. "
His mother, Patricia, said he never expected to end up in Central Asia, exploding the rocket.
"It's disbelief," he said. "It will take us to places we like".
Some tour agencies offer visits to Soyuz with $ 5,000 per person in Cdn prices.
Launching to one of the Canary Islands
After the retirement of the last shuttle expedition, the Russian astronauts Soyuz program was the only way to reach ISS.
NASA distributes roughly $ 80 million across the United States's astronaut's seats and ISS projects.
Canadian contributions made a memorable mission to Chris Hadfield five years ago as commander of the ISS, but the only trip to Saint James is awaiting a Canadian astronaut.
On the other hand, the only other active astronaut with Jeremy Hansen's Canadian Space Agency should wait a few years earlier.
The installation of Baikonur was built at the beginning of the 1960s in the Soviet Union space program.
While Russia has built a new cosmos while it is far from that country, Vostochny manages solely charging jobs and needs to be marketed in Kazakhstan to continue with a predictable future.
Saint Jacques started up in December, but next October he moved after the last Soyuz crew.
Both crew fled unexpectedly after a dangerous atmospheric atmosphere.
