Russian supply ship docks with orbiting space station

An unmanned cargo ship has docked at the International Space Station to deliver nearly 3 tons of supplies, Russia’s space agency said.

The Progress 52 spacecraft docked smoothly with the orbiting station Saturday, shortly after being launched from Russia aboard a Soyuz rocket.

Russia’s RIA Novosti news agency said the mission returned to the short 6-hour course to the space station.

The previous supply mission took two days to rendezvous with the station.
