Expedition 40 Soyuz Docks to Space Station

Between launch and a few months of life in the International Space Station, crew members in the Russian Soyuz TMA-13M spacecraft will travel just six hours before carefully docking to the ISS.

This is what it looks like 262 miles above Earth as Soyuz Commander Max Suraev of Roscosmos, NASA Flight Engineer Reid Wiseman, and ESA Flight Engineer Alexander Gerst attach their tiny ship to our orbiting research lab in space.

In the archives: more videos from the International Space Station, including one of our favorites: a tour of ISS given by Commander Sunita Williams.
