Soyuz TMA-19 / ISS docking.
13:58
On June 17, 2010 at 22:21 UTC (June 18 at 02:21 Moscow time) the Russian "Soyuz TMA-19” spacecraft with three crewmembers on board docked with the International Space Station (ISS), to the aft end docking port of the "Zvezda” service module.
The crew consisted of Russian cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchihin and American astronauts Douglas Wheelock and Shannon Walker.
When the hatches between the spacecraft and the ISS were opened, the three new crewmembers were welcomed by Russian cosmonauts Alexander Skvortsov and Mikhail Korniyenko as well as by U.S. astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson who had been aboard the station since April 2010.
