A Soyuz spacecraft carrying a veteran cosmonaut and film crew arrived at the International Space Station after launch early this morning. A Soyuz rocket launched the Soyuz MS-19 spacecraft at 4:55 am EDT (0855 GMT) from the Baikonur Cosmodrome. The spacecraft docked with the station's Rassvet module at 8:22 am EDT (1222 GMT), using a manual approach after problems with the automated docking system. The spacecraft is commanded by cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov, who will stay on the station through March. The other two people on the spacecraft are actress Yulia Peresild and director Klim Shipenko, who will film scenes for a Russian movie called Vyzov or Challenge during their 12-day stay.
