Today a new crew entered the International Space Station (ISS) after docking the Russian Soyuz capsule to the space station.
After the new crew's Russian Soyuz capsule docked with the orbiting space station, the three men who blasted off Friday from the Central Asian nation of Kazakhstan -- Russian Sergei Krikalev, American John Phillips and Italian Roberto Vittori -- were met with joyful embraces by two men who have lived in the station for six months.
Next month the new crew will see space shuttle Discovery dock to the space station - the first after the Columbia disaster in February 2003.
