Space X's Dragon capsule with four astronauts docked with ISS

US private company Space X's Dragon capsule docked that night with the International Space Station, the world agencies said, as cited by BTA.
The docking took place in automatic mode, after a 27-hour flight, also in fully automatic mode.

On board the Dragon capsule are three Americans and one Japanese. These are the flight commander, Colonel Mike Hopkins of the United States Air Force, and two other Americans - third-rank Navy Captain Victor Glover, the first black astronaut on a long-term mission in space, and physicist Shannon Walker, the only female crew member. The fourth person on board is Japan's Soichi Noguchi. The four astronauts will remain six months aboard the station, where two Russians and an American woman are now based.
