SOYUZ DOCKED WITH SPACE STATION

While the Expedition 49 astronauts make a light day of it in preparation for Soyuz MS-02 spaceship that docked today, they are also getting ready to receive the Cygnus supply ship on Sunday, October 23, 2016.

NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough and cosmonauts Sergey Ryzhikov and Andrey Borisenko of the Russian space agency Roscosmos have arrived at the International Space Station. Their Soyuz MS-02 spacecraft docked with the station’s Poisk module at 5:52 a.m. EDT. At the time of docking, the space station and Soyuz were flying 251 miles over southern Russia.

When hatches between the Soyuz and space station open at about 8:30 a.m. EDT, the three crew members joined Expedition 49 Commander Anatoly Ivanishin of Roscosmos and Flight Engineers Kate Rubins of NASA and Takuya Onishi of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency.

While relaxing and enjoying a light work day, the incredible picture of the docked Soyuz spaceships with earth’s lights below was taken.
