The docking went off without a hitch early on Tuesday morning Moscow time (03:08 UTC) as space enthusiasts around the world watched Fedor’s second shot at docking at the ISS.

On a manned mission, the crew can take control and dock manually in such circumstances, but Fedor was unable to steer the spaceship on his own.
The #SoyuzMS14 spacecraft docked to the Zvezda module of the International Space Station. The crew is now preparing to open the hatches.
