Progress Supply Ship Successfully Launched Into Orbit

An unmanned Progress cargo ship loaded with 2.9 tons of supplies was successfully launched this morning. Bound for the International Space Station, it is the first launch attempt after the failure of a Soyuz rocket with another unmanned Progress last August.
With this successful launch, the way is clear for the launch of the next ISS three man crew November 14.
