Russia launches cargo ship to ISS
Moscow: Russia has successfully launched an unmanned resupplying spacecraft to the International Space Station (ISS), the Federal Space Agency Roscosmos said Wednesday.
The Progress M-23M was launched by the Soyuz-U carrier rocket on the fast-track mode, Xinhua quoted , Roscosmos as saying.
The spacecraft, which carries 2.5 tonnes of cargo containing water, food, fuel, oxygen, medical and scientific equipment, was placed on orbit nine minutes after the launch. It also carried 132 kg of US consignment.
This was the seventh space launch conducted by Russia this year. On March 26, manned Soyuz TMA-12M`s fast-track travel to the ISS failed due to a glitch in the ship`s guiding system, which led to a two-day delay of the docking.
The ISS crew currently consists of six Russian, US and Japanese members.
