To Space in Six hours

Can you believe it? A manned Soyuz spacecraft has docked at the International Space Station (ISS) after a journey of mere six hours.

The journey that usually takes a couple of days was cut short by forty two hours because scientists cut short the number of orbits the spacecraft travelled. Spacecraft displayed some very fine ballistics moves and cut out around 30 orbits, travelling only four orbits in the end to reach the destination.

The short cut had been earlier  successfully tested on three Soyuz cargo spacecrafts that carried space supplies.
