KOROLEV, November 20. /TASS/. Russia’s Soyuz MS-03 piloted spacecraft with a new crew onboard for the International Space Station (ISS) mated the ISS in the automatic mode, Mission Control Center told TASS on Sunday.
"The spacecraft docked Rassvet small research module," the source said. The spacecraft crew will go to the ISS after checking tightness of docking and pressure equalizing between the spacecraft and the station.
Russia’s Oleg Novitskiy, US astronaut Peggy Whitson and Thomas Pesquet from the European Space Agency arrived to the station on board of the Soyuz MS-03 spacecraft.
This is the 50th launch to the ISS. The spacecraft departed on November 17 from Baikonur launch site.
