Soyuz Rocket Docks At Space Station

The Russian Soyuz spacecraft lifted off on a six-month voyage in Kazakhstan last night.

The three people on board join three others already at the station.

Among the new arrivals is Italy's first female astronaut.

The arrival of Samantha Cristoforetti from the European Space Agency makes it the second time in the station's 16-year history that two women have been aboard on long-term missions.
