Posted: Sun, Apr 4, 2010, 10:37 AM ET (1437 GMT)
A Soyuz spacecraft carrying three new crewmembers for the International Space Station docked with the orbiting outpost early Sunday. The Soyuz TMA-18 spacecraft, launched early Friday from Baikonur, Kazakhstan, docked with the Poisk module of the station at 1:25 am EDT (0525 GMT) Sunday, and hatches separating the spacecraft opened about two hours later. On board the Soyuz were three new members of the station's crew: Russian cosmonauts Alexander Skvortsov and Mikhail Kornienko and American astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson. They join three other people already on the station: Oleg Kotov of Russia, T.J. Creamer of the US, and Soichi Noguchi of Japan, bringing the station up to its full six-person capacity.
