Not many of us get the chance to see a rocket launch from this angle during our lifetimes, but at least we can see the pictures.
The European astronaut Alexander Gerst managed to photograph the launch of three new crew members to the International Space Station from his post aboard the labeling laboratory.
The pictures taken on Monday show the Soyuz rocket carrying the three new space station inhabitants, as it rises to orbit just after launch.

It was the first crew of Soyuz for decades. The Monday launch marks Soyuz’s return to form .
The new crew includes the NASA astronaut Anne McClain, the Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques and the Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenkoof. They will stay aboard the space station for about 6.5 months as utö be science and learn how to live in space.
And who knows maybe they will also discover a rocket launch from space during their time in circulation.
