A Russian cosmonaut who caught a US lift  

International Space Station arrived at her new home Thursday for a five-month stay,  

The linkup occurred 260 miles (420 kilometers) above the Atlantic, just off the west coast of Africa. 

It was the first time in 20 years that a Russian hitched a ride from NASA's Kennedy Space Center 

She'll live and work on the Russian side until March, 

before returning to Earth in the same SpaceX capsule. 

You guys are the best,” replied Mann, the capsule's commander.
