A new crew of three is set to be launched into space Wednesday, and will take over the International Space Station from Friday till late February.

U.S. astronaut Shane Kimbrough and Russian cosmonauts Sergey Ryzhikov and Andrey Borisenko will be launched to space aboard the Soyuz MS-02 spacecraft, set for liftoff from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 08:05 UTC (4:05 a.m. EDT).

The launch had originally been scheduled on Sept. 23, but was pushed back by a short circuit in the spacecraft. Engineers had to fix the problem, a bent wire behind the cosmonaut seats, before proceeding with the launch.
