New Crew Arrives at Space Station

NASA’s Richard Mastracchio, Russia’s Mikhail Tyurin and Japan’s Koichi Wakata arrived at the International Space Station early Thursday morning, just a little over six hours after launching in their Soyuz rocket from Kazakhstan.

The crew is carrying the Olympic torch that will be used to light the Olympic flame in Sochi, Russia, for the 2014 Winter Games.
