A U.S.-Russian space crew successfully docked at the International Space Station (ISS) on September 26, after a minor technical problem that briefly threatened to delay their arrival. Barry 'Butch' Wilmore, Alexander Samokutyaev, and Elena Serova - the first Russian woman to live on the ISS - will spend 170 days on board. U.S.-Russia cooperation at the ISS has continued despite bilateral political tension over the Ukraine crisis. (Reuters)
