SpaceX's spacecraft carrying 3 astronauts from the US and 1 cosmonaut from Russia has arrived at the International Space Station for a NASA mission.

After departing from Florida, the Dragon Endeavor spacecraft docked with the ISS, a research laboratory, and successfully opened its mission hatch.

US astronauts Matthew Dominick, Michael Barratt and Jeanette Epps and Russian cosmonaut Alexander Grebenkin will conduct nearly 200 science experiments during their mission.

Despite the war in Ukraine and tensions between them, space is one of the few areas where the US and Russia continue to cooperate closely.
