    SUMMARY: The 11th crew to man the International Space Station blasted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome on Thursday. The Soyuz TMA capsule carrying Cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev, Astronaut John Phillips, and European Space Agency Astronaut Roberto Vittori of Italy reached orbit a few minutes after launch. Krikalev and Phillips will replace the current crew, while Vittori will only remain on the station for a week and then return with Expedition 10. The Soyuz will dock on Saturday.

    I am wondering just how many successful launches the Russians have had and how many soyuz capsules they have launched. Also, I was wondering how many failures they have had and cosmonauts lost. As far as I can remember they have not had a failure or loss of crew.
