Soyuz TMA-10 has docked with the ISS!

Approach to the International Space Station (ISS), its fly-around, stationkeeping and docking were performed normally, in automatic mode.

The initial contact with the docking port on the mini research module Poisk of the ISS Russian Segment occurred at 06:45 Moscow Time.

The mission control and the monitoring of the spacecraft systems status during rendezvous and docking were provided by the Lead Operations Control Team working at the Mission Control Center near Moscow (MCC-M). The Flight Director is the RSC Energia First Deputy General Designer V.A. Soloviev.

The final flight operations in the course of the spacecraft rendezvous and docking with the space station were supervised by the State Commission for manned systems flight tests and the Technical Manager for flight tests of manned space systems, the RSC Energia President and General Designer V.A. Lopota.

After a leak test of the spacecraft compartments and the docking unit, and equalization of pressure between the space station and the spacecraft, the transfer hatches were opened. The spacecraft crew transferred to the Russian segment of the ISS.

A joint international crew of the 37-th Expedition (ISS-37) began its work on-board the space station: Russian cosmonauts Fyodor Yurchikhin, Oleg Kotov, Sergei Ryazanskiy, US astronauts Karen Nyberg, Michael Hopkins and a European astronaut Luca Parmitano.

On-board systems of the ISS, and spacecraft Progress M-20M, Soyuz TMA-09M, Soyuz TMA-10M operate normally.

Present at MCC-M during the final operations of the spacecraft rendezvous and docking with ISS were representatives of Roscosmos, and foreign space agencies.
