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.
