The Russian Soyuz TMA-3 manned transport spacecraft has been docked to the Orbital Complex of the International Space Station (ISS). Contact of the spacecraft docking assembly with the docking port of the Piers Docking Compartment took place at 11:16 Moscow daylight saving time when the spacecraft and complex were in the radio visibility of Russian ground measuring stations.

The Soyuz TMA-3 spacecraft approached the ISS Orbital Complex after two days of the autonomous flight on the near-earth orbit, completing on the final portion of this phase all necessary operations on rendezvous to the complex and final approach to it in the automatic mode.
