Soyuz TMA-6 docks with ISS (NASA) The two-man crew of the International Space Station briefly left the orbiting outpost early Monday, flying their Soyuz spacecraft from one docking port on the station to another. William McArthur and Valery Tokarev boarded the Soyuz TMA-7 spacecraft and undocked from the nadir port on the Zarya module at 1:49 am EST (0649 GMT). They maneuvered the spacecraft to the aft post of the Zvezda module, docking there at 2:11 am EST (0711 GMT). The maneuver was designed to free up the post on Zvezda for the next ISS crew, which will be arriving in their Soyuz spacecraft on the evening of March 31.
