U.S.-Russian crew dock at space station

MOSCOW (Reuters) - A U.S.-Russian crew in a Russian Soyuz space ship docked at the International Space Station on Sunday, the Russian space agency Roscosmos said.

The Soyuz TMA-18 docked successfully two days after blasting off from the Baikonur cosmodrome in the Kazakh steppe with a crew of three onboard.

The spacecraft, carrying U.S. astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson and Russian cosmonauts Alexander Skvortsov and Mikhail Korniyenko, automatically docked at 0524 GMT, according to a statement on the Roscosmos website www.roscosmos.ru
