The flight was initially supposed to take six hours, but the Russian space agency Roscosmos changed the schedule due to safety concerns.

KOROLEV (Sputnik) — The Soyuz TMA-18M spacecraft, carrying three crew members, has successfully docked at the International Space Station (ISS), a spokesperson for Russia's RKA Mission Control Center said Friday.

"Luckily, there was no need for crew intervention in the automatic docking processes, nor a transition to teleoperator mode," the spokesperson told RIA Novosti.

The mission was launched early on Wednesday. The flight was initially supposed to take six hours, but the Russian space agency Roscosmos changed the schedule due to safety concerns.

The Soyuz crew comprises Russian cosmonaut Sergei Volkov, European Space Agency flight engineer Andreas Mogensen, who became Denmark's first ever astronaut, and Kazakh cosmonaut Aydin Aimbetov.

The ISS program is a joint project among five participating space agencies: the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Russia’s Roscosmos, the European Space Agency (ESA), Japan’s Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA).
