Russia’s Soyuz TMA-02M spacecraft set to dock with ISS

Russia’s Soyuz TMA-02M manned spacecraft will dock with the International Space Station (ISS) in an automatic mode on Friday at 1.22 Moscow time (21.22 GMT, Thursday), a spokesman for the Russian Mission Control said.

The spacecraft was launched from the Biakonur space center in Kazakhstan on June 8 and carries an international crew of three people, who are Russia’s Sergei Volkov, NASA’s Mike Fossum, and Japan’s Satoshi Furukawa.

The new crew will join the ISS Expedition 28 consisting of Russian cosmonauts Andrey Borisenko and Alexander Samokutyaev and NASA astronaut Ronald Garan.
