Four new crew members have joined the crew of the International Space Station.

Americans Mike Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker and Japan's Soichi Noguchi arrived on board SpaceX’s newly launched capsule late Monday. The International Space Station will be their new home until spring.

The Dragon capsule pulled up and docked late Monday night, following a 27-hour, completely automated flight from NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The linkup occurred 262 miles (422 kilometers) above Idaho.

The three Americans and one Japanese astronaut will remain at the orbiting lab until their replacements arrive on another Dragon in April.
