New Space Station Supply Ship Launches from Kazakhstan

The unpiloted Russian ISS Progress 55 cargo craft launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan April 9 on a four-orbit, six-hour journey to deliver almost three tons of food, fuel and supplies to the six-man Expedition 39 crew aboard the International Space Station. The new Progress will remain mated to the Pirs Docking Compartment at the station until late July, when it will undock and be deorbited to burn up in the Earth's atmosphere.
