Anousheh in Orbit!

The Soyuz vehicle containing the space explorer Anousheh Ansari has reached orbit! Stay tuned for more details, but it appears that the launch went well. Ansari and her crewmates will now have roughly two days before docking with the International Space Station. It turns out that they will dock just a few hours before the Space Shuttle is due to land on Wednesday morning. Of course, the Shuttle has already undocked from ISS, after a very successful assembly mission. It's getting hectic up there at the Station -- in a very good way. Congrats to Anousheh and the entire Ansari family for a safe launch.
