A Russian rocket was launched in Baikonur space base yesterday, with three crew members including a US grandfather.

The trio comprise Russians Oleg Skriprochka and Alexey Ovchinin, and US grandfather of three, Jeff Williams, a veteran of long-duration space missions.

Williams is poised to enter the record books.

"The Soyuz rocket took off successfully," the Russian space agency Roskosmos said in a statement.
