 A new team of astronauts has joined the International Space Station this Wednesday for another series of experiments. The connection between the Soyuz TMA-09M with the ISS took place automatically, no manual assistance was required. 

      The new space expedition is led by the Roskosmos astronaut Fyodor Yurchikhin, for whom this is the fourth flight in his career. NASA's Karen Nyberg has flown to the ISS before, on an American space shuttle; this was the first time she flew on Soyuz shuttle. And for Luca Parmitano, from the European Space Agency, this is the first space mission. 

      The team plans to undertake around 100 experiments during their shift at the International Space Station.
