NASA Introduces Next ISS Astronauts

A replacement crew of astronauts for the International Space Station launch from Russia in October. A Soyuz Rocket will take the six for expeditions 33 and 34. They include Oleg Novitskiy, who's flying to ISS for the first time.

Translated: "... So in brief, we're going to launch on October 15th from the Cosmodrome. The launch pad site is number 31, which is somewhat unusual, because for the past 13 years, there are no launches from this launch pad."

Novitskiy and his colleagues were introduced in a NASA news briefing today.
