A Russian capsule has arrived at the International Space Station, bringing three new residents.
The Soyuz spacecraft docked with the orbiting lab Saturday night. The hookup occurred 225 miles above the South Pacific.
The two Russian cosmonauts and one American astronaut are joining three others at the space station. Their mission will last 5-and-a-half months.
Newly arrived NASA astronaut Scott Kelly will get a special treat toward the end of his tour. His identical twin brother, Mark, is scheduled to fly up at the beginning of March aboard shuttle Endeavour. Both are spacecraft commanders.
Joining Kelly for Saturday night's check-in were Alexander Kaleri and Oleg Skripochka. They launched early Friday from Kazakhstan.
