expedition 16 arrives at the ISS

Expedition 16 Crew arrives at the international space station (ISS)The expedition 16 crew already docked on Friday to the international space station (ISS). I had set up a webcam robot last Friday, but could not check the recordings until now. I think I discovered some nice images of hatch opening and and crew arrival. I created an animated gif file out of the few frames I have. The first two images show the hatch, and the later ones show how the joint expedition 15 and 16 crews gather together for the welcome ceremony.

Again, proper station handover is a prerequisite for a successful STS-120 mission. So Discovery won't start until the station is ready to support it.
