MOSCOW – A Russian cargo spacecraft was launched on Friday to deliver nearly three tons of supplies to the crew of the International Space Station.
A Soyuz rocket carrying the Progress MS-20 unmanned vessel was launched on schedule from the Russian-leased Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
The spacecraft reached a preliminary orbit and deployed its solar arrays and navigation antennas en route to the space outpost.
The ship is expected to dock at the station later Friday. It provides food, fuel, and other supplies for the station’s crew.
