A Soyuz rocket successfully launched a Progress cargo spacecraft to the International Space Station Friday. The Soyuz FG rocket lifted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 1:14 pm EST (1814 GMT) Friday and placed the Progress MS-10 cargo spacecraft into orbit nine minutes later. The spacecraft, carrying 2.5 tons of cargo, is scheduled to dock with the ISS Sunday at 2:29 pm EST. The launch was the fourth for a Soyuz rocket since the October failure during the Soyuz MS-10 launch, but the first to use the Soyuz FG version of the rocket, the same version that suffered the failure.
