23:58
On October 10, 2010 at 00:01 UTC the Soyuz TMA-M spacecraft successfully docked to the International Space Station.
The space vehicle docked to the "Poisk” module. The rendezvous and docking was performed in automatic mode.
 
 
After leak check of the interface and the compartments, the hatches between the spacecraft and the station were opened and the Soyuz TMA-M crew Alexander Kaleri, Oleg Skripochka and Scott Kelly joined the ISS crew Douglas Wheelock, Fjodor Yurchikhin and Shannon Walker.
Following a staggered schedule, Wheelock, Walker and Yurchikhin plan to depart at the end of November and Kelly will take over as commander of the Expedition 26 crew. Three fresh crew members -- Dmitri Kondratyev, Catherine Coleman and Paolo Nespoli -- are scheduled for launch to the station in mid December.
