A Soyuz capsule carrying a Russian cosmonaut, an American astronaut and US billionaire tourist Charles Simonyi have docked at the international space station. Russian cosmonaut Gennady Padalka manually guided the capsule to a stop ahead of schedule Saturday two days after blasting off from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The crews of the capsule and the station will spend around three hours checking seals before opening the air locks and meeting up face-to-face.
