New Crew Welcomed Aboard Space Station After Docking

A two-man U.S.-Russian crew arrived at the International Space Station after their Russian Soyuz capsule successfully docked with the International Space Station.

A Soyuz Spacecraft carrying a Russian and an American reached the international space station, completing the first two-man flight to the iss in over a decade.

The Soyuz MS-04 spacecraft with veteran Russian Cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin and NASA rookie Jack Fischer onboard successfully docked to the ISS.

NASA is seeking to cut costs on supply missions prior to the installation of a new module to expand the Russian section of the orbital lab at the end of 2017 or in early 2018.
