International Space Station crew members docked their Soyuz TMA-10 
spacecraft to the aft port of the Zvezda service module at 3:47 p.m. EDT 
Thursday, completing a move of 80 feet.

After the Soyuz undocked at 3:20 p.m. EDT, Flight Engineer Oleg Kotov 
piloted the spacecraft to the aft port of the Zvezda service module, 
freeing up the Zarya nadir, or Earth-facing, port for the arrival of 
Expedition 16 on Oct. 12.

The Soyuz wound up about 80 feet from where it started, despite having 
traveled about a third of the way around the world.
