Launch time: 14:22 GMT (9:22 a.m. EST)
Launch site: Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan
Official name: Progress M-MRM2


A Russian government Soyuz rocket will launch the Mini Research Module 2, a new docking compartment for the International Space Station.



Live coverage probably from Tsenki TV: http://www.tv-senki.com/livechoose.php

I probably post more about live coverage when I know more. If you know some live coverage links for this launch, don't hesitate to post them here. ;)

Some info about MRM2 from Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mini-Research_Module_2



Nice image galleries from Energia's pages:

Live coverage has been started at both Tsenki TV streams.

I don't know is it just me, but that Live3 link seems to have a little better quality. It also has some hints of sound, where that first link is completely silent at the moment.

The best quality video can be found three posts after this post.

Here is the Youtube video:

This don't seem as smooth as my stream were... So I'll probably post a new one here after someone uploads better version to Youtube.

EDIT:

A little better image quality, but sound is missing:

So still searching proper one... It will be available at least when Russians publish their official coverage.

EDIT2:

Here is Vesti's coverage:

Next milestone is tomorrow docking and after that the progress service module undocking... Which hopefully both will be available from Youtube.
