At 4:00 p.m. Moscow time (noon GMT) EN.RIA.RU will begin its live broadcast of the Soyuz TMA-06M spacecraft’s docking with the International Space Station (ISS).
A Mission Control Center spokesman earlier said the docking, to take place at 4:35 p.m. on Thursday, would be carried out in automatic mode. The spacecraft, launched from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan on Tuesday, carries the new ISS crew members - cosmonauts Oleg Novitsky and Yevgeny Tarelkin and NASA astronaut Kevin Ford.
The Expedition 33/34 crew members are to conduct dozens of scientific experiments during their mission. They will also oversee safe docking and undocking of several cargo spacecraft, including Dragon, the first commercial resupply vehicle, and Russia’s Progress space freighter.

Some people are trying to make the reality in Russia at least a bit more humane. The amnesty should apply not only to persons involved in high-profile cases, but also to individuals who are not as well-known. It is better to set free at least some of the individuals who deserve to be released than no one at all.
