Damaged cargo ship docks with International Space Station


An umanned cargo spacecraft managed to dock with the International Space Station (ISS) this morning, despite damage to its navigational antenna. The craft delivered over three tons of food, fuel, and equipment to the ISS crew.

Shortly after the Russian cargo ship, Progress 51, launched on Wednesday, April 24, from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, one of its two antennas used for navigation and docking failed to deploy. After the glitch was discovered, NASA updated the public on Twitter, saying that Russian ground controllers were assessing a fix.
