An unmanned Russian cargo ship has re-docked with the International Space Station after a failed attempt five days earlier.

The docking Sunday was successful, after an earlier attempt failed because of problems with a new docking system.

The new docking system will be sent back to Earth for modification.

The supply ship will load garbage from the space station, then be sent to burn up in the atmosphere.
