Mengira masa pelancaran roket

Ya seperti tajuk di atas marilah sama-sama kita meng'countdown' masa
pelancaran roket yang membawa angkasawan negara pertama ke stesen angkasa ISS untuk menjalankan misi Soyuz 15-S. Roket akan di lancarkan dari Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan (teringat misi dalam game command and conquer: general pasal tempat nih). Kalau nak tahu Baukonur ni tempat yang sesuai untuk melancarkan roket sebab kat sini graviti kurang sikit dan stategik... entah aku ada baca sket2 pasal tempat ni.

Apa diorang buat kat atas sana?? Apa yang dalam surat khabar, katanya angkasawan negara akan membuat kajian saintifik pasal sel kanser kat angkasa lepas untuk belajar efect kesan graviti ke atas sel.

UPDATE: Soyuz dah berlepas... so selamat bertolak dan selamat pulang....

NASA description:

The Soyuz spacecraft and launch vehicle are installed on the launch pad at the Baikonur complex in Kazakhstan. Baikonur is the world's largest space center. This launch was part of the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project (ASTP), a cooperative space mission between the United States and the USSR. The goals of ASTP were to test the ability of American and Soviet spacecraft to rendezvous and dock in space and to open the doors to possible international rescue missions and future collaboration on manned spaceflights. The Soyuz and Apollo crafts launched from Baikonur and the Kennedy Space Center respectively, on July 15, 1975. The two spacecraft successfully completed the rendezvous and docking on July 17th. While the Soyuz craft returned to Earth on July 21st, the Apollo craft stayed in space another 3 days, landing on July 24th in the Pacific Ocean. ASTP was a success, as not only did crews accomplish the rendezvous and docking, but they also performed in-flight intervehicular crew transfers and various scientific experiments. ASTP proved to be significant step toward improving international cooperation in space during the Cold War.

Info Soyuz spacecraft: (dari wikipedia)

The basic Soyuz spacecraft design was the basis for many projects, many of which never came to light. Its earliest form was intended to travel to the moon without employing a huge booster like the Saturn V or the Soviet N-1 by repeatedly docking with upper stages that had been put in orbit using the same rocket as the Soyuz. This and the initial civilian designs were done under the Soviet Chief Designer Sergei Pavlovich Korolev, who did not live to see the craft take flight. Several military derivatives actually took precedence in the Soviet design process, though they never came to pass.

A Soyuz spacecraft consists of three parts (from front to back):
