ISS readied for Soyuz docking

Russian space mission controllers have lifted the orbit of the International Space Station by 2 kilometers to prepare the ISS for docking with a Russian Soyuz ferry capsule, due to blast off from Baikonur on Wednesday with three people on board.

The lifting came three days behind schedule because of problems with the orbiter’s solar panels.
