A Russian Soyuz spacecraft carrying three crew members, has docked at the International Space Station.

The successful rendezvous came two days after blasting off from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The crew included U.S. astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson and Russian cosmonauts Alexander Skvortsov and Mikhail Korniyenko.

During their mission, the crew will receive three cargo ships and make two space walks -- one from the U.S. segment of the station and one from the Russian.

Within three days, a seven-person crew aboard the Shuttle Discovery will dock at the station for a 13-day mission. During this period, four women will be in space at the same time, a new record.
