American, Russian arrive at International Space Station


A Soyuz space capsule delivered an American astronaut making his first space flight and a veteran Russian cosmonaut to the International Space Station on Thursday.

Whitson also became the first woman to take charge of the ISS twice, having inherited command of the lab for the first time from Yurchikhin in 2007.

NASA astronaut Jack Fischer and Roscosmos cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin launched on the Russian Soyuz MS-04 capsule on top of a Soyuz-FG rocket from Kazakhstan's Baikonur Cosmodrome at 3:13 a.m. EDT on Thursday, April 20.
