Olympic Torch Blasts Off - Presented by: The Aol. On Network

It may look like any other Russian rocket launch but this one has a crucial difference. On board the Soyuz rocket carrying three astronauts there is also the Olympic torch. The torch, unlit for safety reasons, blasted off from the Baikonur launch facility in Kazakhstan on Thursday. Two Russian cosmonauts are planning to take it for a space walk on Saturday. The Russian Black Sea resort city of Sochi is due to host the 2014 Games.
