Soyuz capsule with Charles Simonyi aboard docks at space station

A Russian-built Soyuz capsule docked at the international space station, two days after blasting off from the Baikonur cosmodrome with U.S. billionaire Charles Simonyi and two Russian cosmonauts aboard.

Once the capsule is secured to the station, it will take roughly two hours before the Soyuz crew are able to open the air locks and greet face-to-face the station's current crew - Russian Mikhail Tyurin and American astronauts Miguel Lopez-Alegria and Sunita Williams.
