Soyuz TMA-2 docked to ISS (NASA) A Soyuz spacecraft docked with the International Space Station early Wednesday, two days after its launch. The Soyuz TMA-4 spacecraft docked at the nadir port of the Zarya module at 1:01 am EDT (0501 GMT) Wednesday, and hatches between the station and spacecraft opened about an hour and a half later. The Soyuz spacecraft carried the Expedition 9 crew of Gennady Padalka and Michael Fincke, as well as visiting ESA astronaut Andre Kuipers.
