A  new crew arrived at the International Space Station on Thursday.  

A Soyuz spacecraft lifted off Wednesday night from Kazakhstan carrying one NASA astronaut and two Russian cosmonauts.

On board the rocket was also the Olympic Torch.

Russia is hosting the Winter Olympics, which kicks off in February 2014.   

A cosmonaut will carry the torch outside the space station on a spacewalk this weekend. 

The torch returns to Earth with 3 different ISS crew members on Sunday.
