BAIKONUR (BNS): The Soyuz TMA-16 spacecraft, carrying two astronauts and a space tourist, has docked with the International Space Station, Russian Mission Control has said.

The spaceship docked with the ISS at 12.35 Moscow time on Friday, Itar-Tass reported.

The space capsule had blasted off from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan on Wednesday, carrying Expedition-21 crew members – Russia’s Maxim Surayev and USA’s Jeffrey Williams – to the space station. Canadian billionaire Guy Laliberte also joined the team as a space tourist.

Laliberte will return to Earth after eight days along with Russia’s Gennady Padalka and US’ Michael Barratt who have been in the space station since March.
