Soyuz TMA-20 Docks with Space Station

Russia’s Soyuz TMA-20 spacecraft docked with the International Space Station (ISS) as scheduled this afternoon, delivering three new ISS crew members. The new crew members again illustrate the international nature of the program, with one from Russia, one from the United States, and one from Italy.

The three join two Russians and an American who have been aboard for several months. NASA hasn’t issued a press release about the docking yet or posted a story on the ISS website, but one can read all the news at the European Space Agency’s (ESA’s) website. Or follow NASA tweets. The docking was at 3:12 pm EST (20:12 GMT).
