Soyuz TMA-1 spacecraft docking with ISS (NASA) The Soyuz TMA-1 spacecraft successfully docked with the International Space Station early Friday. The two spacecraft docked at 12:01 am EST (0501 GMT) Friday, with the Soyuz docking with the Pirs module of the station. Hatches opened between the two spacecraft about 90 minutes later. The taxi crew that arrived on Soyuz TMA-1 — Russian cosmonauts Sergei Zaletin and Yuri Lonchakov and Belgian astronaut Frank De Winne — will spend eight days on ISS performing a suite of scientific experiments before leaving on the older Soyuz TM-34 spacecraft that has been docked to the station for the last six months.
