The International Space Station has three new tenants, doubling in crew size with the arrival of a Russian Soyuz capsule.
The Soyuz has delivered an American, an Italian and a Russian for a five-month stay.
They floated into the orbiting lab two days after their launch from Kazakhstan.
The docking took place 220 miles above Mali in western Africa.
The newest space station residents are Catherine Coleman, Paolo Nespoli and Dmitry Kondratyev. Two Russians and one American were already on board.
