Unmanned Supply Ship Blasts off to Space Station


An unmanned spacecraft launched on its way toward the International Space Station today (Nov. 25) for a post-Thanksgiving Day docking with the orbiting lab.

The unmanned Russian Progress 53 supply ship launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 3:53 p.m. EST loaded up with tons of food, fuel and other supplies — including some holiday goodies for the space station's Expedition 38 crew.

The International Space Station passed directly over the cosmodrome four minutes before the Progress launched to space. The vessel is scheduled to dock with the orbiting outpost on Friday (Nov. 29).
