A Soyuz-U launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan ferrying two rookie cosmonauts, a shuttle veteran and 32 small fish to the International Space Station (ISS). The Soyuz is set to dock with the ISS at the Zvezda command module's upper Poisk compartment on Thursday morning. The fish are part of an experiment to study how they adapt to zero gravity.
