July 4th, 2010... MOSCOW: The Progress M-06M cargo spacecraft successfully docked with the International Space Station (ISS), RIA Novosti correspondent reported from Mission Control on Sunday. The Space freighter docked to the port of the Russian Zvezda in the automotive mode. Friday's docking for the space freighter was aborted due to a loss of telemetry. Flight controllers reported the resupply craft flew past the ISS. The spacecraft was about 2 km from the station when the system received a signal to stop approaching the ISS. The Progress M-06M was launched from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan on a Soyuz-U carrier rocket on Wednesday night. The space freighter carries fuel, oxygen, scientific equipment and video and photo equipment to the ISS, as well as food, water and personal items for the 6-men crew of the orbital station.
