Poisk docks to ISS (NASA) The Russian Poisk module docked to the ISS on Thursday, two days after its launch from Kazakhstan. The module, guided by the service module of a Progress spacecraft, docked to the zenith port on the Zvezda service module at 10:41 am EST (1541 GMT) Thursday. The module, also known as the Mini-Research Module 2, serves as an airlock module and docking port for the station, and will also host scientific experiments. The module, similar in design to the Pirs airlock module already attached to the station, is the first major element to be added to the station's Russian segment since the launch of Pirs in 2001.
