Soyz Rocket

The Soyz Rocket intended for the first ISS crew rolls from the assembly building to the launch area on October 29, 2000. Developed for the Soviet moon program, Soyz was to carry lunar landing crews to an orbiting lunar excursion vehicle launched unmanned by a massive rocket. The large moon rocket was never successful, but the smaller Soyz rocket remains as the standard Russian manned space vehicle. The launch facility is the "Baykonur" Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. (It is actually not near Baykonur.)
