A new crew of two Russians and one American successfully docked with the International Space Station (ISS) Thursday, Russian mission control said.
The Soyuz capsule with Russian cosmonauts Oleg Novitskiy and Evgeny Tarelkin and NASA's Kevin Ford docked with the ISS at 1229 GMT after their two day journey from Earth.
The three men blasted off from Russia's Baikonur cosmodrome in a Soyuz TMA-06M space craft Tuesday.
When the hatches open, the crew will join NASA's Sunita Williams, Russia's Yuri Malenchenko and Japan's Akihiko Hoshide, who arrived in July and are due to leave in mid-November.
