A Soyuz spacecraft carrying three new International Space Station crew members docked with the station on Friday morning. The Soyuz TMA-07M spacecraft docked with the station's Rassvet module at 9:09 am EST (1409 GMT), three minutes ahead of schedule. Hatches separating the spacecraft and station opened about two and a half hours later. The Soyuz, launched on Wednesday, carried to the station NASA astronaut Tom Marshburn, CSA astronaut Chris Hadfield, and Roscosmos cosmonaut Roman Romanenko. They join NASA's Kevin Ford and Roscosmos' Oleg Novitskiy and Evgeny Tarelkin on the ISS.
