News Brief: The orbital welcoming committee wore Hawaiian shirts when three new crew members arrived at the International Space Station today. “We’re really glad to see them, finally,” Russian cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev said. NASA’s Serena Aunon-Chancellor, Germany’s Alexander Gerst and Russia’s Sergey Prokopyev floated through the hatch after a two-day trip aboard a Russian Soyuz craft launched from Kazakhstan. They’ll spend nearly six months on the station, working alongside Artemyev as well as NASA’s Drew Feustel and Ricky Arnold.
