British Astronaut Tim Peake blasted off from Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
He is Britain’s first European Space Agency astronaut and is on a six month mission to the International Space Station.
The Soyuz rocket launched at 11.03am GMT on a six-hour trip to deliver Major Peake and his two crew mates to the orbiting station.
The former army pilot is making history as the first official UK astronaut.
