Three new crew members safely arrived at the International Space Station (ISS) on Thursday after less than a six hour flight from Russia's Baikonur cosmodrome. The mission capsule, carrying spacemen from the US, Japan and Russia, successfully docked to the International Space Station at 1:45am GMT around 400km (250 miles) above Earth. The three new crew members take off was delayed by nearly two months due to safety procedures, after an unmanned cargo spacecraft failed to reach its destination and burnt up on re-entering the Earth's atmosphere.
