Russian Cargo Spacecraft Docks at ISS

An unmanned Russian spacecraft has docked successfully with the International Space Station delivering cargo and supplies for its crew.

A spokesman for Russian Mission Control Valery Lyndin says the Progress M-67 craft reached the docking module Wednesday. He said the space station crew guided the freighter to the station's docking port using manual controls.

The craft lifted off Friday from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan, carrying two-and-a-half tons of supplies including food, water, fuel and various equipment to the station.

The space station's permanent crew doubled to six in May. It now includes two Russians, two Americans, a Canadian and a Belgian.
