An unmanned Russian cargo ship blasted off Thursday to the international space station to deliver supplies and equipment for its three-person crew, space officials said.
The Progress M-59 lifted off atop a Soyuz-U booster rocket at 5:12 a.m. from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan and entered orbit about nine minutes later, said Nikolai Kryuchkov, a spokesman for the Federal Space Agency.
The ship was expected to dock at the station at 6 a.m. on Saturday to deliver 2 1/2 tons of fuel, spacewalk gear and other supplies for the two American astronauts and the Russian cosmonaut currently on board the station.
