A Soyuz capsule docked with the international space station Saturday, bringing Brazil's first astronaut, a new Russian-American crew and a fresh load of supplies, equipment and experiments. Two days after blasting off from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, the TMA-8 capsule arrived at the orbiting station and latched on just after 8:19 a.m., guided into place automatically by computers on the capsule and on the station. Dozens of Brazilian, American and Russian officials fell into hushed silence at Russia's Mission Control Center in Korolyov, outside Moscow, as the capsule neared the station, then broke into applause when contact was made.
