MOSCOW -- An unmanned Russian cargo ship has docked with the International Space Station.
The Russian space agency said the docking occurred without problem on the first attempt at 1027 GMT (5:27 a.m.
It was the maiden launch of a modified version of the Progress, which has been in service for more than four decades. The new version, called Progress-MS, is fully digital and features an improved docking system.
A Progress launch in April ended in failure, but the latest supply mission in October was successful.
