Cana­dian as­tro­naut to blast off Mon­day

StarMetro Vancouver - - THE FEED -

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.
