Caption: Soyuz rocket engines. View of the exhaust nozzles from the engines of the first and second stages of a Russian Soyuz rocket launcher. The first stage is composed of four engines, each with four combustion chambers, clustered around the central core of the second stage. The first stage engines burn for 118 seconds, the second stage for 290 seconds. The smaller nozzles are the vernier engines that provide stability control and steering. This rocket, photographed at the Baikonur Cosmodrome, was used on the Soyuz TMA-11 mission to the International Space Station in 2007.
