A rocket had blasted off from Baikonur cosmodrome carrying a special cargo.

The Winter Olympic torch is due to be handed over to the crew of the Space station as part of a spectacular showcase for the 2014 games in Sochi.

Although it won’t be lit for safety reason the torch will be taken on its first ever space walk on Saturday.
