A Soyuz rocket carrying the Sochi 2014 Olympic torch has arrived at the International Space Station, as part of the Russian lead-up to the Games.
On Saturday two Russian cosmonauts already on the space station, Oleg Kotov and Sergei Ryazansky, will take the torch outside on a historic spacewalk.
The Olympic torch has been carried into space twice before - in 1996 and 2000 - but it has never left a spaceship.
