Russia will launch three new crew members to the International Space Station (ISS) at 5:18 pm CDT on Monday (6:18 pm Monday EDT; 6:18 am Tuesday at the launch site in Kazakhstan).

The launch of Russian cosmonauts Alexander Samokutyaev and Andrey Borisenko along with NASA astronaut Ron Garan aboard Soyuz TMA-21 will be aired live on NASA TV.

The three will join the three ISS crew members already aboard the earth orbiting laboratory — American Catherine (Cady) Coleman, Russian Dmitry Kondratyev, and Italian Paolo Nespoli.
