NASA said in a statement: "The crew members of Expedition 56-57 will continue work on hundreds of experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science aboard the International Space Station, humanity's only permanently occupied microgravity laboratory".
Liftoff took place 4:12 p.m. local time (7:12 a.m. EDT / 11:12 GMT) atop the approximately 161-foot (49.5-meter) tall Soyuz rocket from the Baikonur Cosmodrone in Kazakhstan.
