Soyuz launch (Energia file photo) A Soyuz booster launched a Progress cargo spacecraft Monday from Baikonur, Kazakhstan. The Soyuz lifted off at 1:24 pm EST (1824 GMT) and placed into orbit the Progress M1-7 spacecraft. The Progress, also known as Progress 6 by NASA, will dock with the International Space Station on Wednesday afternoon. It is carrying over two tons of food, propellant, and other supplies for the station. It also has on board the Kolibri microsatellite, a small spacecraft that will be released from the station carrying Russian and Austrian experiments. Monday's launch was the first orbital launch since an Indian PSLV booster launched three spacecraft on October 22. The gap between launches was the longest since the early 1960s.
