BAIKONUR, Kazakhstan — A Russian rocket carrying a US astronaut and two Russian cosmonauts has blasted off successfully from Kazakhstan.

They were seen off early Friday by an unexpected visitor to the Baikonur cosmodrome — Russian spy Anna Chapman, seen in public for the first time since being deported from the United States in July.

The three-man crew of Scott Kelly and Russia's Alexander Kaleri and Oleg Skripochka is due to reach the International Space Station in two days.
