The new Mini-Research Module-2, named Poisk, the Russian word for �explore,� was launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on a Soyuz rocket on Nov. 10, 2009, at 9:22 a.m. EST (8:22 p.m. Baikonur time). The Poisk is scheduled to automatically dock to the zenith, or space-facing port of the International Space Station�s Zvezda Service Module on Nov. 12, 2009. The module will serve as an additional docking port for Russian spacecraft, a second airlock for Russian-based spacewalks and a platform for external science experiments.
