A crew of three space travelers arrived at the International Space Station this week. American Timothy Kopra, Briton Tim Peake and Russian Yuri Malenchenko arrived at the ISS on Tuesday. They came by a Soyuz capsule that blasted off from Kazakhstan.

Peake is the first British astronaut to visit the International Space Station. The former helicopter pilot represents the European Space Agency.

They will be there for six months. Two Russians and American Scott Kelly were already at the space station.
