Resupply spacecraft docks with International Space Station

by Staff Writers
Moscow (AFP) Sept 17, 2008
The Russian unmanned resupply spacecraft Progress M-65 docked with the International Space Station on Wednesday, four days late due to Hurricane Ike, the Interfax news agency reported.

The three astronauts inside the space station will open the hatch of the expendable 2.5 tonne spacecraft -- which carries fuel, food, oxygen and other supplies -- on Thursday after its successful automatic docking.

Progress M-65 was supposed to dock on Saturday, but the date was put back after Hurricane Ike forced the evacuation of staff from the NASA space station in Houston, Texas, from where it is controlled.
