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.
