How does a spaceship leave our planet? In a video shared this Thursday, November 22, the German astronaut Alexander Gerst answers this question in pictures. The clip produced from the international space station and broadcast by the European Space Agency follows the launch of a Russian rocket Soyuz, made on November 16 from Kazakhstan.
The images shot by Alexander Gerst since the Copula module summarize in a little over a minute the movements made by the rocket in 15 minutes. The Progress MS-10, a spacecraft to supply the ISS, was located at the top of this rocket. In particular, he delivered 75kg of oxygen and air and 440L of water.
