Russia launched a Progress cargo spacecraft early on Friday to deliver fuel, food and water to the International Space Station (ISS).
The Progress M-09M blasted off from Baikonur at 04:31 hours Moscow time (01:31 GMT Friday) carrying over 2.6 tons of various life-supporting cargoes, including fuel, equipment, food, water, oxygen, and clothes.
It will also deliver the Kerd microsatellite produced by students that will be manually orbited by Russian cosmonauts Oleg Skripochka and Dmitry Kondratyev during a space walk on February 16.
The progress is scheduled to automatically dock with the ISS at 02:39 GMT Sunday.
