The Soyuz spacecraft has been redocked to a new location on the International Space Station (ISS).

The craft was undocked from the space station’s Zvezda service module and moved about 100ft to the Poisk module in a 20-minute mission, according to UPI.

The spacecraft was shifted to a new docking point to free up a key service module to receive Progress, the next unmanned resupply cargo freighter due on 3 February 2010.

The docking marks the first use of the Poisk module, which will be used as an airlock for future spacewalks.
