MOSCOW (AP): Russian mission control says a Soyuz space capsule has successfully flown from one module of the International Space Station to another after a delay.

The capsule was piloted by Russian astronaut Fyodor Yurchikhin. It was moved from the docking port at the space station's Zvezda module to make way for an unmanned Russian Progress capsule bringing supplies to the station on Friday.

The transfer to the Raasvet module took 24 minutes, the ITAR-Tass news agency cited Russian space programme spokesman Valery Lyndin as saying on Monday.

The transfer was delayed by about 90 minutes because of problems with solar panels at the station, Russian news agencies cited NASA representatives at mission control outside Moscow as saying.
