Russian resupply ship docks at space station with sweets
A Russian cargo spaceship on Saturday docked at the International Space Station, authorities said, three days after launching from Kazakhstan with supplies that included sweets and chocolate.
The Progress M-05M docked manually at 1835 GMT after the automatic systems did not work, a Russian Mission Control Centre spokesman said in a report by the Interfax news agency.
The space craft had carried about 2.6 tonnes of freight including water, food, medicines, fuel and "psychological support" that included sweets, caramels and chocolates for the station's international crew.
It launched on Wednesday from the Baikonur space centre in Kazakhstan.
Three Russian cosmonauts, two US astronauts and a Japanese crew member currently occupy the orbiting science laboratory.
