Canadian astronaut to blast off Monday
MONTREAL—CANADIAN astronaut David Saint-jacques won’t be carrying much with him when he leaves Earth to blast off to the International Space Station on Monday.
If all goes according to plan, he will take off at 6:31 a.m. eastern time from the steppes of Kazakhstan on the first manned Russian rocket launch since a dramatic aborted Soyuz failure in October.
What does one bring to space? A small shoebox containing items such as wedding rings and a watch.
