Soyuz Carrying Expedition 16 Docks At Station
Expedition 16 Commander Peggy Whitson, Flight Engineer Yuri
Malenchenko and spaceflight participant Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor
have arrived at the International Space Station. Their Soyuz TMA-11
spacecraft docked to the Earth-facing port of the station’s
Zarya module at 1050 EDT Friday.
As ANN reported, the
station's new residents and their Malaysian guest launched at 0922
EDT Wednesday from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
Expedition 15 Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin and Flight Engineers
Oleg Kotov and Clay Anderson welcomed the new crew aboard the
station when the hatches were opened at 1222 EDT. Both crews will
work together for about nine days before Yurchikhin, Kotov and
Shukor depart in their Soyuz TMA-10 spacecraft.
Anderson will remain onboard with Expedition 16 and return to
Earth next month aboard Discovery on its STS-120 mission.
