Soyuz launch of Progress M-24M (Roscosmos) A Progress cargo spacecraft launched from Kazakhstan and arrived at the International Space Station (ISS) six hours later. A Soyuz rocket carrying the Progress M-24M spacecraft lifted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome at 5:44 pm EDT Wednesday (2144 GMT Wednesday, 3:44 am Thursday local time) and placed the spacecraft into orbit. The Progress followed a "fast track" trajectory that allowed it to arrive at the ISS four orbits after launch, docking with the Pirs module at 11:31 pm EDT Wednesday (0331 GMT Thursday). The Progress carried nearly three tons of supplies and other cargo for the ISS. The Progress arrived two days after another Progress, loaded with trash, departed from the station.
