Progress launched to ISS

Soyuz launch of Progress M-28M (NASA) A Russian Progress spacecraft successfully launched to the International Space Station early Friday, a little more than two months after the previous such mission failed. A Soyuz-U rocket carrying the Progress M-28M spacecraft lifted off at 12:55 am EDT (0455 GMT) Sunday and placed the spacecraft into orbit. The Progress, carrying more than 2,75 kilograms of supplies, is scheduled to dock with the station at 3:13 am EDT (0713 GMT) Sunday. The launch came after the previous Progress mission failed when the spacecraft spun out of control after separation from its upper stage. The successful launch also eases concerns about the station's supply lines after a SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft was destroyed in a launch failure June 28.
