  US video game magnate Richard Garriott headed into space aboard a Russian rocket yesterday watched by his father, a NASA astronaut who went into space at the height of the Cold War.

  The Russian Soyuz TMA-13 spacecraft lifted off in clear weather from the Baikonur Cosmodrome on the Kazakh steppes just after 一:00 pm local time.

  A video game developer from Texas, Garriott paid $35 million to fly into space alongside US astronaut Michael Fincke and Russian cosmonaut Yury Lonchakov.

  Garriott's father, Owen, watched the blast off through binoculars on an observation platform and Garriott's girlfriend, Kelly Miller, burst into tears. "I am very happy for him. It is one of the things he really wanted to do," Miller said as others opened champagne to celebrate the successful launch.

  "I can see he is really enjoying it like a little kid in the candy shop," Miller said.

  Space officials said the Soyuz rocket had reached orbit safely and would dock with the International Space Station (ISS) in about two days.

  "He made it, he made it into orbit. It is marvellous," said Owen Garriott, a physicist who was selected as an astronaut by NASA for his scientific background. He spent 60 days in space in 1973 and another ten days in 1983.

  After 10 days in space Garriott will return to Earth with the ISS's former crew aboard a Soyuz re-entry vehicle, a three-person capsule which has malfunctioned on its last two flights.

  In April, a Soyuz capsule landed 420 km off course after explosive bolts failed to detonate before re-entry, sending the craft into a steep descent.

 Last year, a Soyuz capsule carrying Malaysia's first astronaut also made a so-called "ballistic" landing, similarly blamed on faulty bolts.

  美国计算机游大亨理查德?加里奥特于昨日搭乘1架俄罗斯载人飞船,在父亲的目送下飞赴太空。他的父亲曾是美国宇航局的1名宇航员,曾在“冷战”时代登上太空。 俄罗斯“同盟号TMA-13”载人飞船于当地时间下战书一时0几分从位于哈萨克斯坦大草原的拜科努尔发射场发射升空。 偕行的还有美国宇航员迈克尔?芬克以及俄罗斯宇航员尤里?隆恰科夫。来自得克萨斯州、从事电脑游戏开发的加里奥特为此次太空游共花消3500万美元。 加里奥特的父亲欧文在一个观测台上通过1架双眼千里镜旁观了全部发射进程,加里奥特的女友凯莉?米勒则喜极而泣。她说:“我真的为他雀跃。这是他的一个梦想。”现场的其他人则开启香槟祝贺飞船发射成功。 米勒说:“我可以感觉到他很高兴,就像一个孩子在糖果店里同样。” 据指挥中心官员介绍,现在飞船已经平安达到轨道,并将在约莫两天后与国际空间站对接。 加里奥特的父亲欧文·加里奥特说:“他终究实现了自己的梦想,很了不起。”欧文曾是一名物理学家,后来依附该配景被美国宇航局选为航天员。他曾于1973年在太空逗遛60天,又于1983年在太空待了10天。 加里奥特将于10天后与偕行的两位前国际空间站工作人员搭乘“同盟号”飞船的返回舱返回地球。“同盟号”返回舱可搭载三人,曾在前两次遨游飞翔中涌现故障。 本年四月,“同盟号”飞船返回舱在进入地球大气层以前因爆炸螺栓未能引爆,末了在偏离预定着陆点420千米的处所惊险着陆。 客岁,搭载马拉西亚首位宇航员的“同盟号”返回舱也因螺栓题目来了个“弹道式”着陆
