Russian Cargo Craft Launches on Expedited Trip to Station

An unpiloted Russian cargo ship carrying nearly three tons of supplies for the Expedition 36 crew launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 4:45 p.m. EDT Saturday (2:45 a.m. Sunday Kazakhstan time) on an accelerated, four-orbit journey to rendezvous with the International Space Station. At the time of launch, the station was flying 260 miles over southern Russia near the border between Kazakhstan and Mongolia.

Less than ten minutes later, the ISS Progress 52 resupply ship reached its preliminary orbit and deployed its solar arrays and navigational antennas.
