MOSCOW (AP) — A Soyuz capsule carrying three astronauts has successfully docked with the International Space Station, bringing the size of the crew at the orbiting outpost to six.
Michael Hopkins of the United States and Russians Oleg Kotov and Sergei Ryazansky traveled six hours in the capsule before linking up with the space station's Russian Rassvet research module at 06.45 a.m. Moscow time (0245GMT).
Their six-month mission will include a spacewalk with the Olympic torch.
Their mission began with a late-night launch from the Russian-leased Baikonur launch pad in Kazakhstan.
