Soyuz TMA-6 docks with ISS (NASA) A Soyuz spacecraft carrying two Russian cosmonauts and an American space tourist docked with the ISS on Monday afternoon. The Soyuz TMA-10 spacecraft docked with the nadir docking port on the Zarya module of the ISS at 3:10 pm EDT (1910 GMT). Hatches between the Soyuz and station opened less than 90 minutes later, allowing the station and Soyuz crews to greet. The Soyuz, launched two days earlier, carried Russian cosmonauts Fyodor Yurchikhin and Oleg Kotov, who will remain on the station as members of the Expedition 15 crew, and American space tourist Charles Simonyi, the fifth commercial passenger to visit the ISS. Simonyi will return to Earth in the Soyuz TMA-9 spacecraft on April 20 with current ISS crew members Mike Lopez-Alegria and Mikhail Tyurin.
