Russian spacecraft Soyuz docks with ISS
Moscow: Russian spacecraft, Soyuz TMA-22 docked Wednesday at 09:24 Moscow time (0524 GMT) at the International Space Station (ISS).
The spacecraft carrying two Russians and an American astronaut had a glitch-free landing after a spate of technical failures in the past few months.
The manned spacecraft was launched from the Baikonur space centre in Kazakhstan on Monday. The launch, which was conducted as planned at 08.14 Moscow time, had been delayed for almost two months after a Progress cargo spacecraft crash in August.
The new crew members Anton Shkaplerov and Anatoli Ivanishin from Russia and Daniel Burbank of the US will join Russian cosmonaut Sergei Volkov, Japanese Space Agency astronaut Satoshi Furukawa and NASA astronaut Michael Fossum, who have been working in orbit since early June.
